Angel Hair Pasta with Garlic Spinach

Linda Diaz, Vail, AZ

1 lb. of Angel Hair pasta
1 pkg. frozen spinach
1/4 cup olive oil
8 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Roma tomato, diced in small pieces
2 cups of pasta water or chicken broth
Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese for topping
OPTIONAL: 1/2 cup cooked Sausage (I used left over Jimmy Dean Sausage)

Start boiling water for pasta (salted and add a little olive oil). Cook pasta according to directions and strain reserving 2 cups of the pasta water for the sauce

In a fry pan, add olive oil and heat over a medium low temperature. Rinse the spinach in water and strain it to get out the water (squeeze with hand if necessary), then add garlic cloves to the oil. Fry the garlic until it is light brown but do not let it become dark brown. Add the spinach, 2 cups of pasta water, and chopped Roma tomato to the fry pan. Season the spinach mixture with salt and pepper then add the cooked sausage and let it simmer for approximately 10 minutes or until the liquid has reduced down to half. Mix with the pasta and serve in a bowl, sprinkle with fresh grated Parmesan cheese. Serves 4
