Ingredients

1/4 pound cooked smoked turkey or chicken sausage
1 large leek, cut into 1/4-inch slices
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
2/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 (7 ounce) jar roasted red sweet peppers, drained and cut into thin, bite-size strips
8 cups torn fresh spinach
6 ounces dried pasta
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup finely shredded reduced-fat Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper


DIRECTIONS


1. Cut the sausage lengthwise into quarters. Slice into 1/4-inch pieces. In a large skillet, cook leek and garlic in hot olive oil until leek is tender. Stir in sausage, chicken broth, and roasted peppers. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Add spinach. Cook, stirring frequently, for 1 to 2 minutes or just until spinach starts to wilt. Remove from heat.


2. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to package directions, omitting any oil or salt; drain. Return pasta to saucepan. Add spinach mixture, basil, Parmesan cheese, and black pepper. Toss to coat. Serve immediately.
