Sausage Spinach Pasta

I am always amazed by how quickly spinach goes bad.  It really only lasts for a few days.  I often find it hard to use up all the spinach.  I don’t really know why.  It cooks down to such a small amount, you would think I would be able to eat it quickly. 

Unfortunately I often prepare a spinach salad for lunch for Mike.  Since I’m using raw spinach, I can only fit so much in the lunch container.  It seems like I barely make a dent in the spinach container even after filling up his entire lunch container with spinach.

Here is a delicious pasta recipe that uses up 8 ounces of spinach!  The pasta has plenty of flavor because the noodles are cooked in the sauce.  It’s quick, easy and can be made in one pot.
