Butternut Squash, Sausage, Spinach Pasta
These days it is all about fast! Before I know it, it is 5PM and time to race everyone to the commuter rail to pick up David. Poor guy ALWAYS gets in the car with everyone screaming (Yes, me included!). And the race home to get all the screaming out of the car can be frantic. My goal each and every day is to make this pick-up and transition as smooth as possible which means to try and have some kind of dinner ready to be eaten immediately upon arrival so all hangry parties can settle. Last night's concoction was quite delicious and sated the beasts.
1lb Italian Sweet Sausage
Whole Wheat Pasta
Saute 1lb of Italian sweet sausage in olive oil, add one diced onion and cook until translucent, add 2 cups of chopped butternut squash and stir and cook. Let the butternut squash brown a little bit. Add in 2 cup of chicken broth, juice from 1/2 of a lemon and 2 tablespoons of champagne vinegar, simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add a bag of baby spinach and stir in until wilted. In a separate pot, bring 1 cup of whole wheat pasta to boil, cook to al dente, and then mix into the sausage pot and enjoy!
