4 links Italian turkey sausage
1/2 medium onion, finely diced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry (Optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 1/2 teaspoon basil
2 cups crushed tomatoes
3 cups low sodium chicken broth
5 cups Penne pasta
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Remove turkey sausage from casings and fry in large skillet over medium-high heat until crumbled and brown, about 2-3 minutes. Add onion and garlic and cook until softened, about 2 minutes.
Add spinach, red pepper flakes, salt, parsley, oregano, basil, tomatoes and broth and stir until combined. Stir in the pasta. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium and cover. Cook, stirring often, until pasta is tender, about 12-15 minutes (smaller pasta will take less time). Top with cheese, cover and let sit until cheese is melted. Serve.
