Pasta Florentine

Pasta Florentine

Mild Italian sausage links
Package of bow-tie pasta
Package of chopped frozen spinach, thawed and the water drained
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1-1/2 tablespoons garlic, minced
(2) 15 oz. jars of Classico sun-dried tomato Alfredo sauce
ground pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack at about 6 inches from the heat source. Place the sausage links on the broiler pan and broil until sausage is crispy on the outside and the inside is no longer pink. Remove and once sausage is cooled, cut into bite sized slices. In a large saucepan, add olive oil and garlic and saute until garlic is softened and aroma mellows. Add the Alfredo sauce and sliced sausage, adding the spinach in until well blended. In a large pot, cook pasta in water with a little olive oil until al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain. Mix the pasta in with the sauce. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese and serve with garlic bread.
