Sausage, Tomato and Spinach Pasta


Sausage and Spinach Pasta

I must apologise for the blurry photo. I was STARVING and pasta gets cold really quickly! I whipped this up really speedily when I found I had 2 sausages spare. I always have two sausages spare – since there’s two of us, sausages come in packets of 6 and we have two each, it happens Every Time. I wonder if they do that on purpose.

And being the frugal minded kind of gal that I am – I obviously wanted a way to make them stretch further than a sausage bap in the morning. Bulking it out with onions and a tin of chopped tomatoes seemed like a good idea – and then I threw in a few balls of frozen spinach to up the vegetable content. The bitter spinach goes really well with the salty sausages – and makes this a really good all-rounder for a busy weeknight supper.

Since it was so happily created in order to reduce waste – I’m linking up with Elizabeth’s No Waste Food Challenge over at Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary.
