A little bit of Sunday meal prep goes a long way in this one-dish Mediterranean pasta recipe. The pasta is cooked ahead of time and stored in the fridge to use for meals all week, but any leftover cooked pasta you have on hand will do. Chicken sausage with feta is especially good in this recipe.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 links cooked chicken sausage (9 ounces), sliced into rounds
  • 1 cup diced onion (see Tip)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 (8 ounce) can no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 4 cups lightly packed baby spinach (half of a 5-ounce box)
  • 6 cups cooked whole-wheat rotini pasta
  • ¼ cup chopped pitted Kalamata olives
  • ½ cup finely crumbled feta cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil (optional)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a large straight-sided skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage, onion and garlic; cook, stirring often, until the onion is starting to brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Add tomato sauce, spinach, pasta and olives; cook, stirring often, until bubbling hot and the spinach is wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons water, if necessary, to keep the pasta from sticking. Stir in feta and basil, if using.

I wanted to lick the bowl after eating this. I was blown away by the different tastes and textures. The Kalamata olives definitely pushed this to amazing.

I don't think this should be called "one-pot", since you only cook the sauce. the pasta is cooked in another pot beforehand. it is like using pre-cooked food and giving it as a recipe called "no-cook" :)

This was surprisingly good! I created an account just so I could review it. Try this recipe, you won't regret it. You could easily substitute the sausage for another meat, the flavors would still be there. This one is going in the rotation for sure!
