Sausage, Pasta and Tomatoes in a Skillet

You might have noticed, many of the recipes on this site are made in a skillet.  I’m all about easy to make and easy to clean.  I add some cut-up veggies or fruit to round out the meal.

1.  1# Italian Turkey Sausage
2.  1C Tomato Sauce (it may be pasta or pizza sauce or can of straight tomato sauce)
3.  1 can tomatoes, diced or chopped
4.  8oz pasta, small is easiest to manage in skillet
5.  Small bag (6-8oz) of Baby Spinach leaves
5.  1 cup Mozzarella Cheese, part-skim
6.  1 1/2 cup nearly boiling water

1. Cook sausage thoroughly & drain.
2.  Add tomatoes, sauce, pasta and water.  Boil.
3.  Cover pan and decrease temperature to a simmer until pasta is al dente (~12 minutes).
4. Add spinach. Stir in mixture.  Turn off heat and add cheese.
