Turkey Sausage & Arugula Pasta

Certainly no ordinary pasta. The cheese is the key to the balance of flavors.



  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Cook pasta until just tender, 9 to 11 minutes, or according to package directions.
  3. Meanwhile, cook sausage in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, breaking it up into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in garlic, arugula (or spinach) and tomatoes.
  5. Cook, stirring often, until the greens wilt and the tomatoes begin to break down, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat; cover and keep warm.
  6. Combine 1/2 cup cheese, pepper and salt in a large bowl. Measure out 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid; drain the pasta.
  7. Whisk the cooking liquid and oil into the cheese mixture; add the pasta and toss to combine. Serve the pasta topped with the sausage mixture and an extra sprinkle of cheese, if desired.
  8. Note: for the biggest impact, make sure to use imported Italian cheese.

I liked this recipe. I added a few more things, red and green bell pepper, mushrooms, and I used spinach instead of arugala. Maybe there needs to be an Edit, because garlic is not mentioned in the ingrediants, but it is in the instructions.
