Quick Meal: Creamy Angel Hair with Sausage and Spinach

My hubby has been asking me for YEARS to take pictures of the meals I make.    Tonight’s supper was yummy enough that I actually did!   Unfortunately, I did not take a picture of the big beautiful platter of pasta.  I had to take a picture of the little leftover portion.   There was not much for leftovers either.   Very quick to prepare, so great for a week day meal.

Creamy Angel Hair with Sausage And Spinach

14 oz. package smoked kielbasa
1/2 large chopped onion
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 cans of chicken broth
8 oz. angel hair pasta, broken in 1/2
9 oz. package baby spinach
1/3 cup whipping cream
5 oz. of shredded Parmesan Cheese (the kind in the dairy section, not the green jar stuff!)

Slice kielbasa into 1 inch pieces.  Sauté kielbasa, onion, garlic and oil in a large soup pot until vegetables are opaque.  Add broth and 1/4 cup water; bring to a boil.  Add pasta; cook for 3 minutes.  Add Spinach; cook about 1 minute.  Stir in cream and parmesan cheese.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

I served this with Garlic Bread and Prince Edward Vegetable Medley.

Happy Cooking
