This is a variation of my Mom's recipe. I found the garlic added a nice flavour to the original recipe. In all honesty the spinach was a means of placating my wife. Fresh spinach is best as the flavor is not too strong (great for kids!). The sausage was a spur of the moment add that I thought worked well. I found penne pasta works best. I tried elbow macaroni and the texture just wasn't right. As always, criticism is always welcome!
