Chicken Sausage Linguine

I don't go to Trader Joe's that often.  Not sure why, I always find wonderful things there. Yummy, healthy things at decent prices.  I should go to Trader Joe's more often.  On a recent trip there I got some chicken sausages and a few other ingredients that I used to make this dish.


  • 3 links Garden Vegetable, Mushroom and Asiago Chicken Sausage (Trader Joe's)

  • 1 cup chopped portabella mushrooms

  • 3/4 cup chopped balsamic glazed grilled sweet onions (Trader Joe's find)

  • 1 cup Roasted Garlic Marinara sauce

  • 1 package Garlic Basil Linguine (Trader Joe's)

  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach

  • 1/4 cup shaved Romano & Asiago Cheese (Trader Joe's)

  • 1 tsp salt


1. Squeeze sausages out of their casings in to a pan

2. Add onions and mushrooms and cook until sausage is cooked through

3. Add marinara sauce and salt and bring to a simmer

4. Cook pasta according to package directions

5. About 2 minutes before pasta is done, incorporate the spinach into the sauce.  It took me about 3 batches to get it all in, stirring each batch until it wilted down before adding the next batch

6. Drain pasta and toss with a little olive oil to prevent sticking

7. Spoon sauce over pasta and top with cheese
