Chicken Sausage, Spinach, & White Bean Farfalle.

I cannot say enough great things about this delicious dish! It’s easy to make, has only 350 calories a serving, and is super inexpensive.  The taste is rich, but light—and is sure to please even your pickiest dinner guests.

Here is what you will need to serve 4 generous portions ( add more or less ingredients to feed your crew )

– 2 Italian Chicken Sausage Links

– Half a chopped white onion

– 3 cups of  raw, bulk spinach

– 1 cup of white cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

– Grated Parmesan cheese

– Olive Oil

– Half a cup of low sodium chicken broth

– 10 Oz. Farfalle “Bow Tie” Pasta


Boil pasta, drain, set aside

Heat the onions in olive oil on the stove top until they are soft.  Once the onions are soft, stir in the sausage, cook until golden brown- approx 5 minutes.  Set aside the onions and sauage in a separate dish.

Next, add the cannellini beans and chicken broth to the skillet, cook on the stove top for about 2 minutes.  Add the spinach on top on the beans and broth.  Cook four more minutes.

Transfer the sausage and onions to the spinach and beans mixture.  Stir, cook for another minute.  Add grated cheese while cooking.

Pour sausage mixture over the pasta, toss, and ENJOY! 


Yes, it’s that easy and looks THAT good!
