Simple Six Ingredient Fall Dinner

The end of the year is crazy for me at work. Lots of long hours and events, and I generally don’t feel like cooking big dinners once I get home. Because of my big Trader Joe’s haul a few weeks ago, I am fully stocked up on the fall flavors TJ’s have to offer. Last week I cooked up a simple six ingredient meal that had me wanting more. I discovered this Gilbert’s Bourbon Apple chicken sausage, added some gemelli pasta, and Trader Joe’s Autumnal Harvest pasta sauce and there you had it.

2 Gilbert’s Bourbon Apple chicken sausages
½ shallot, chopped
½ lb Barilla Gemelli
1 cup Trader Joe’s Autumnal Harvest pasta sauce
¼ cup half & half
½ bag spinach

  1. Boil pasta to the directions on the box.
  2. Sauté shallots in oil and add chicken sausage on medium high until browned.
  3. Once browned add pasta sauce and half &half. Lower heat to medium low and allow to simmer 5 minutes.
  4. Add spinach and fold into sauce. Allow to wilt down.
  5. Drain pasta and add to sauce. Fold together and serve.
