Italian Sausage Pasta Toss

This recipe is from my friend Cammie Weaver Hayden...(we went to elementary school in Hardin Montana and have become friends on Facebook)

These are her directions exactly...(I thought it sounded really yummy...and fresh!)

Tomato & Spinach Pasta Toss ( I call it Italian Sausage Pasta Toss)
2 c. penne or bowtie pasta, uncooked
1/2 lb. hot or mild Italian sausage, casing removed (I use ground pork)
1 pkg. (6 oz.) baby spinach leaves (or 7 cups) ( I don't use this much, cus it's a buttload)
1 can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano, undrained(I like to add about 4 oz. tomato sauce and more seasonings to make it a little saucier and more flavorful... if you like add about 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. of basil, etc... )
1 cup Kraft shredded mozzarella cheese
2 T. parmesan cheese

Cook pasta. Cook meat on medium high heat; drain.Add tomatoes, sauce, and seasonings with meat, cook until heated through. Add spinach and cook for two minutes. Put pasta, sauce, and cheeses in bowl and toss! Delicious! Makes 6, 1 cup servings.
