  • enough pasta for four cooked in salted water
  • 150 grams spicy sausages casings removed
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 and 1/2 to 2 tablespoons garlic minced
  • a bunch of spinach (as much or as little as you like), blanched (see how to blanch)
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • cheese shredded, to serve


  • Squeeze the spinach to remove as much water as you can.
  • Chop the spinach, coarsely or finely, that’s up to you. Then, place between stacks of paper towels (or two kitchen towels) and press to remove more water.
  • Roughly chop the sausage meat.
  • Heat the olive oil in a pan. Add the sausage meat and cook until lightly browned.
  • Add the garlic and cook for another 30 seconds.
  • Add the spinach to the sausage meat. Toss.
  • Add the cooked pasta. Toss to coat the noodles with oil and to distribute the greens and meat evenly. Taste, season with salt and pepper, as needed. Cook just until the pasta is heated through.
  • Top the pasta with sausage and spinach with shredded cheese before serving.
