One tasty (and super easy) meal!

Wow! I just threw together a dinner that was fantastic and I am SO pleased! One of the things I love about cooking is that you can just wing it, and sometimes it's not so good, it's usually fairly tasty, and sometimes, it is DELICIOUS, and that, I love! Tonight I whipped something together in less than half an hour and it was tasty, healthy and satisfying, so here's the recipe - try it out!

Ingredients: Campanelle pasta, diced onion, minced garlic, sliced spinach and feta chicken sausage (or something like it), olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste, shredded parmesan cheese.

Heat water for pasta. While the water is heating up, add olive oil to a pan over medium heat, add onion and sausage and begin to brown. Add the pasta to the boiling water. Once the sausage is about halfway cooked, add the garlic and turn the heat down to medium low. Saute all of the ingredients until the sausage is just about done, be sure to move everything around so it doesn't burn, but try to make sure the sausage stays in contact with the pan as much as possible. Add the cooked pasta, plus a tablespoon or two of the cooking water, and mix with the rest of the ingredients. Add salt and pepper and continue to stir around and cook until sausage is cooked through. Turn off heat and while keeping everything in the hot pan, add lemon juice and parmesan. Stir well and serve!
