Arrabbiata Pasta with Italian Turkey & Spinach

Pasta is great because there are so many different combinations you can make. Sometimes I want to keep it simple and have only the pasta and the Cucina & Amore pasta sauce. Other times I’m feeling a little more adventurous and want to add a little extra to really liven up the dish. Any way you want it, pasta is always an easy and delicious way to do some creative cooking. So when I came across the Pasta Skillet with Chicken Sausage & Spinach recipe from Simply Recipes, I was inspired to add some extra ingredients to my next pasta meal. I didn’t have a skillet and went with the alternative as mentioned in the original recipe.
