Shoprite had some flavored chicken sausage on sale last week. I figured why not give it a whirl. Im not a fan of regular sausage, but thought why not maybe this kind will be ok. This recipe was perfect because I also had spinach to use up! I thought this was ok, the husband really liked it though.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add garlic and onion, then sausage. Season with salt and pepper. Cook through, then add spinach. Add salt and pepper again to taste. Cook until spinach is slightly wilted.

bake for about 20 minutes, until cheese has melted and everything is heated through.
