Turkey Sausage Spaghetti

My Thursday work schedule was a mess. I really did not feel like cooking but I had something in mind to make on our BUSY day I decided we could not make another stop at Subway for dinner. This dinner took me 30 minutes to make and was easy to pack up and hit the road.

Turkey Sausage Spaghetti

serves 3

3 turkey sausage links, sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 onion, sliced
1 Tbsp olive oil
1-28oz crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
1/2 kalamata olives, halved
2 cups kale, chopped (I would opt for spinach)
1/2 cup fontina cheese, roughly chopped
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cayenne pepper
8oz dry spaghetti

Heat olive oil in pan and cook sausage, onions, and garlic for 8 minutes, until semi-browned. Add crush tomatoes, basil, salt, and cayenne pepper.

Meanwhile, starting boiling water and add salt. Add the spaghetti and cook 2 minutes less than the box indicates. You will be placing the pasta in the sauce to finish cooking the last 2 minutes.

Simmer for 5 minutes. Add the olives and kale or spinach and continue cooking for 5-7 minutes. The fontina cheese will be last ingredient to add. Cook until melted and then add the pasta. Serve and top with Parmesan cheese.
