Amber's QUICK creamy pasta dinner

 What can be simpler than a dish with 5 ingredients, one your kids are sure to love, and is ready to serve in under 30 minutes? A great basic pantry dinner, you can adapt to your family's tastes.

Creamy Pasta and Spinach

  • 12 ounces spaghetti, uncooked (I use thin spaghetti noodles-my family's preference)
  • 1 lb.  ground sausage (I actually use roasted, shredded chicken which I purchase from Costco)
  • 1 jar (24 oz.) spaghetti sauce-use your favorite
  • 4 oz.  Cream Cheese, cubed
  • 1 cup frozen spinach, thawed and drained (ya I know...you hate spinach. Leave it out, or maybe replace it with a different veggie like chopped broccoli)

Cook spaghetti as directed on package.
While spaghetti noodles are cooking, brown meat in large skillet. Stir in sauce and cook on low heat 3 to 5 minutes, add cream cheese and spinach and stir until cream cheese is melted and completely incorporated.
Drain spaghetti and toss with sauce.  It's fabulous!
