This classed-up spaghetti will liven up your weeknight dinners and leave you feeling like a gourmet chef!
In a large saute pan, saute your sliced chicken sausage in 1 T olive oil over
medium high heat until it starts to brown, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.
While the sausage is cooking, bring a large pot of water to a boil and season
generously with salt. Add in your pasta of choice. When the pasta has been cooking for about 3 minutes, add in the chopped asparagus. Once the pasta is cooked, strain everything together. Make sure to reserve a cup of pasta water when straining!
Add the remaining 1 T olive oil to the saute pan, along with the tomatoes and diced bell pepper. Let the tomatoes and pepper start to blister, stirring only occasionally so that each side gets plenty of direct heat.
Once the tomatoes start popping, smash them with the back of a spoon. Stir in
the onion and garlic, and saute for about 3-4 more minutes.
Stir the spinach in with the tomato mixture and saute for 1 minute, or until wilted.
Pour in the tomato sauce and stir to combine.
Add the pasta, asparagus, and chicken sausage into the saute pan with the
sauce. Toss everything together, and add in some splashes pasta water to thin as desired. Serve with a sprinkling of freshly grated parmesan.
