OMG! My kids complain about most food and eating dinner (they're snack-a-holics) but this casserole is not one of those dinners.
When I used to cook this when it was just me and my husband (B.C.), we used to have a ton of leftovers!! However, now there are none, and it's the dog who's most upset....
The sausage you can either get in mild or Spicy and I like to mix both in this dinner. I cook both packs at once, one skillet for each type. Once they are done I take half from the mild and half from the spicy and combine them in one zippy-bag and freeze them (add them to your future Spag&Mtball dinner and WOW!).
I got this from a BHG Mag at least 17 years ago (when we first moved in together - May of '89) and just saw this again on BHG.com (my original calls for half of a bag/box of spinach and 1/2 cup of red peppers and onion (I buy frozen in bags to save time or pre-prep your veggies and freeze), each in addition to what is here as well as draining the pasta water over the spinach in a mesh colander to wilt/separate it..I add the spinach to the sauce mix before stirring)... I tell ya, all.. this is a great recipe!
