baked quinoa with chicken sausage and spinach

23 Oct

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.

adapted from I was born to cook

1 cup quinoa, cooked according to package instructions

1 yellow onion, chopped
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves
1 bag baby spinach

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.

Pour sausage mixture into a deep pie plate, then add quinoa. Mix together. Top with cheese and
bake for about 20 minutes, until cheese has melted and everything is heated through.
