Bowtie pasta with Italian Sausage and Spinach; ingredients:
1 box of bowtie pasta
5 mild italian sausages (you can also mix hot italian sausages to add a little kick to the salad)
2 bundles of fresh spinach
1 medium white onion
2 garlic cloves
salt and pepper
In a separate deep skillet bring water to a boil and cook the spinach, just for a couple of minutes, until it becomes soft and with a bright green color. Remove from the water and put it in a bowl filled with iced water, this makes the spinach maintain it's vivid color until serving!
Chop the spinach into big pieces, you don't want it to be too stringy once people are eating it.
Cook the pasta and mix it with the sausage, you do not have to use the whole box of pasta, it depends of how meaty you want the salad to be, we like to use the whole box an make sure people can have seconds!
After you make sure the stir well the pasta with the sausage add the spinach, making sure you mix it well so you can get everything on each bite, add parmessan cheese to taste.
