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.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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 liked the simplicity of this dish but I did have to season further. Otherwise it would have been too bland. I used medium shells instead of rotini which I think worked better. Rotini would have been too heavy for the sauce. Read More

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. Read More

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":) Read More

I made this with red lentil pasta noodles and the paleo chicken basil sausage links from Costco. Doubled the garlic and added a little more tomato sauce since all I could find at the store were 15-oz cans. Might add a dash of balsamic vinegar when I reheat some fir my lunch today. This is a keeper. Read More

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! Read More
