This is good Italian "peasant" food, or so one italian friend of mine says. I call it wonderfully hearty, flavorful fair. We named this in honor of the gentleman who first invited us to dinner and made this for us.

Wonderful flavor! Love the combination of spinach, sausage, and spaghetti. I found it to be a bit dry for my taste, and decided to throw in a can of spaghetti sauce. TFS :-)

We loved this! Especially my teenage son...he ate it up and asked me to make it again soon. I made exactly as directed and wouldn't change a thing.

This was good and satisfying. The flavors blended well and were not overpowering. For whatever reason I could not find any ziti and so I made it with regular macaroni. This was very easy to make. I served it with a dollop of creme fraiche which mixed well with the flavors of this dish.
