Stir in sausage, chicken broth, and roasted peppers. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Add spinach. Cook, stirring frequently, for 1 to 2 minutes or just until spinach starts to wilt. Remove from heat.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to package directions, omitting any oil or salt; drain. Return pasta to saucepan. Add spinach mixture, basil, Parmesan cheese, and black pepper. Toss to coat. Serve immediately.

Yummy! I had a few adjustments due to availability. I used a regular red pepper, instead of plain pasta I used whole wheat cheese tortellini and lastly just threw some diced green onions on top at the last minute. This was very good!
