    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    Entrees

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Begin by bringing a large pot of water to boil for the pasta. While waiting for the water to boil cut 4 oz of sausage into pieces, mince garlic and dice/clean the leeks; set aside.
    2. 2
      In a large skillet heat up garlic and leeks until tender. Stir in sausage pieces, chicken broth, & red peppers. Bring skillet to boil, reduce heat. Add spinach to the skillet and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until greens are wilted.
    3. 3
      Keep an eye on the pasta, be sure not to over cook. Once pasta is cooked al dente, drain and use only 1 1/2 cups of the pasta. Save the rest of the pasta for another delicious dinner.
    4. 4
      To create the thickener.
    5. 5
      Take 1 tsp cornstarch and equal parts water in a small bowl or cup and stir until well combined. Pour the cornstarch mixture in with skillet and bring to a small boil until the liquid begins to thicken.
    6. 6
      Turn off the heat and allow to set for 3 minutes.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle 1 tsp black pepper over the sausage and spinach mixture and combine well.
    8. 8
      Split the sausage mixture in the skillet into 4 equal parts. Plate each serving & sprinkle fresh chopped basil and grated parmesan on top.
    9. 9
      FYI: The pepper does bring a bit of heat. If you're not a fan of spicy heat in a dish, simply omit the black pepper in the end or reduce the amount of pepper. If you prefer a more soupy style to this dish (which is just as good) simply omit the thickening agent.
