  • 12 ounces package of al fresco sundried tomato chicken sausage sliced .25 inch thick
  • 12 ounces orecchiette pasta
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot chili fliakes
  • 1 pound firm-ripe tomatoes, rinsed, cored and chopped

  • 2 ounces Feta cheese, crumbled


  1. In 5 to 6 quart pan over high heat, bring 4 quarts water to a boil.
  2. Add pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender to bite, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain.
  3. Meanwhile, in a 12 inch frying pan or a 4 to 5 quart pan over medium-high heat, add canola oil.
  4. Add onion and stir often until lightly browned around the edges, 8 to 10 minutes.

  6. Add tomatoes and spinach; stir until spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes.
  7. In a large bowl, mix pasta and sauce to coat; top with feta cheese
