When I assembled these ingredients together, it made me wish that dinner time was here right now. ? Who doesn’t like cream and fettuccine and garlic and tomatoes and more?
To save time, I used a precooked Italian style sausage. It is easy to slice and use in recipes that doesn’t require whole sausages.
To make this spinach sausage fettuccine start by heating the olive oil in a large, deep non stick skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat.
Cook the onions until they are translucent but not too browned.
Next, cut your sausages into rounds. This gives a great presentation to the dish and also makes it quicker to heat them back to the correct temperature.
Add the sausages to the onions and cook them for a minute or so. Now turn the heat to low and add in the garlic.
TIP: I always add my garlic later in a recipe. It burns very easily and adding it at the end of the cooking time helps to prevent this.
In goes the chicken broth, cream, tomatoes and fettuccine noodles. Stir it all together and bring it back to a boil, then lower the heat, cover it and simmer for 15 minutes while you have a glass of wine (my favorite part of the recipe! ?)
I used a 14 inch green pan and my fettucine fit in perfectly.
The spinach goes in at the end with some pink sea salt and pepper to taste. Just a few minutes until they have wilted and the recipe is done. How cool and easy is that?
The taste of this recipe is just amazing! It is rich and creamy with a lovely hint of Italian flavors and mozzarella cheese from the sausages.
All of the ingredients combine to make for a party in your mouth! It’s hard to believe this whole meal is on the table in just about 20 minutes and it’s all done in one pot!
This spinach sausage fettuccine is perfect served with a side salad, or herbed garlic bread (or both!) It is a dish made in foodie heaven.
