  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Heat heavy large saucepan over medium heat. Add sausage, onion, and garlic, and saute until sausage cooked through, about 10 minutes, breaking up meat with back of spoon. Add tomatoes with juice to pan. Simmer until sauce thickens slightly, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Stir in pesto sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Lightly oil 13 x 9 glass baking dish. Combine pasta, spinach, mozzarella, and 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese in large bowl. Stir in hot tomato sauce. Mix gently until spinach is wilted. Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish. Sprinkle remaining 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese over top. Bake until sauce bubbles and cheese melt, about 30 minutes.

    I'd like to make this a day ahead of serving and cook it at the last minute, Would this work?

    This was insanely delicious! I was hesitant at first because there was no tomato sauce involved. I had no spinach but had turnip greens! I'm not a recipe person and didn't feel like shopping. I searched for ingredients I had on hand and this recipe popped up! I'm just flabbergasted! I will most definitely add this to my most wanted list of foods! Thank you so much!

    Excellent. Just sent the link to a friend. I made some tweaks, see below, but I stuck to the main parts. Also FYI I've made it both with the Italian sausage and with ground turkey. Tasted great either way.

    I like my food spicy. Trader Joe's sells canned diced roasted tomatoes with jalapenos. I used them. Skipped the pesto because I didn't have any on hand. Used a bag of TJ's fresh baby spinach and didn't mess with the stems. Used Asiago instead of Parmesan. (cheaper and tastes just as good.)
