Great recipe. Spicy or not to your liking. Translated from french by myself

"This was one a friend pointed out, and I made it expecting it to be kinda bland. However, I found it surprisingly good, and *super* fast. I did add a half shake of both basil and parsley, and I smidgen of garlic powder, not enough of any of it to measure. I also finished the last 2 minutes of my noodles in the pan with the meat while there was still juice left from the bullion, all the flavors mixed quite well."

I made this... The chicken bullion ruined it. Don't add it. It's fine without it.

I must admit I hadn't thought of a spinach pasta with sausage, but it works together very nicely, I still prefer to use my most grinders to make my sausage, ever had fish sausage, yummy.

Very delicious, very easy. I love adding spinach but the kids normally don't, however there were no left overs and I would say it was a hit.

Awesome dish, easy to make and didn't take much time. Even my little ones enjoyed it. Only downside was the soupy consistency. A little too much chicken bouillon from my opinion but still tastes delicious!

Fantastic! Added 3 cloves of garlic. Pepper to taste and stirred in spinach when I poured in chicken broth. Husband loved it! I agree with others... Might try chicken too.

This was yummy! My very picky kids gobbled it up and asked for more....hardly ever happens! I added some garlic but otherwise easy, simple ingredients, and very good!

This was delicious! I used fresh fuselli pasta and chipotle sausages. The spinach didn't wilt enough for my liking so put pasta back in pan with sausages and cooked for another minute. Sprinkled some parmesan cheese on top to finish it off. Super easy and tasty dish to make for the whole family.
