DIRECTIONS

  • In a large 12 inch deep fry pan or skillet, cook spinach and garlic in 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Cook until spinach is wilted (approximately 5 minutes).
  • Transfer spinach to cutting board to cool. When cool, chop spinach.
  • In hot skillet, add the other tablespoon olive oil.
  • Add chopped zucchini.
  • Salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Cook until lightly browned (about 3 minutes). Set zucchini aside.
  • Turn heat to medium high.
  • Add sausage and crushed red pepper.
  • Cook until browned (about 7 minutes). Drain if you like; I don't because turkey sausage is generally pretty lean.
  • Add tomatoes, zucchini, spinach, and half and half.
  • Cook on medium high for ten minutes; reduce heat to low.
  • Meanwhile, boil water and cook pasta.
  • Drain pasta (do not rinse) and add to sausage mixture.
  • Cook on low for about five minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened.
