Creamy Spinach Sausage Pasta

Jolayne Cooper


I was looking for something quick to make and that I could make ahead of time. I saw the picture and read the recipe and I was hooked. I got this recipe from a "Best of Taste of Home" cookbook. We all liked it and I had one guest ask for the recipe. Hope you enjoy!
