Linguine with Italian sausage, Spinach, a delicious sauce and topped with cheese made this a great tasting meal. I used “Hot” Italian sausage and my grandkids still cleaned their plates.

It was fun for them to eat with the rainbow pasta I used that I purchased when I took a class on making Handmade Cheese Ravioliย but of course any type of pasta can be used in this dish.

  2. So pretty linguine ๐Ÿ™‚
    From when I’m in Singapore I’m keep seeing all this kind of “Italian sausages” but not sure why they are calling them Italian…Italian sausages are very plain pork sausages but all the “Italian sausages” I can find here are with a lot of other condiments ๐Ÿ™‚
    However, this looks really delicious…no wonder even with the Hot sausages your grand-kids still cleaned their plates ๐Ÿ™‚ I would do it too ๐Ÿ™‚
