Spaghetti with Kale & Sausage #SundaySupper


Who doesn’t love it when dinner comes together with just a few ingredients?  For me that usually means less dishes, less clean up, and dinner is on the table quickly.  All good things.  This week that is the theme for #SundaySupper. Dinners, breakfasts, desserts, appetizers and more, all of them with 5 ingredients (water, salt and pepper don’t count) or less.

I made this quick and easy pasta dish, that is full of lots of flavor.  This was my first attempt with kale, and I was a little nervous.  But it worked perfectly with the pasta and sausage.  I know I will be buying kale again and trying it in more recipes.  I used hot Italian sausage, so it would have a little kick, without added ingredients.  Italian sausage, or any sausage really, is great because it has lots of seasonings already in there.  So it cuts down on what you have to add to the dish.

We eat a lot of pasta here.  This is a great one now that the temperatures are starting to cool down at night.  Creamy, spicy, and just a comforting dinner.  If you can’t find kale, I think that spinach would hold up well in here as well.  I don’t have much experience with dark greens, so maybe another green would work well too.  Try it, and let me know!

  13. Delicious! We love kale with sausage on pasta. Actually anything Kale, and adding spicy sausage to it sounds delicious!

  14. Perfect combination. We used to eat a lot of pasta and lately for some reason we stopped. I still have a few boxes in the cupboard though so I’m thinking this is a good and easy way to use it up.

    I enjoy kale in soups and salads. Now I want to try your pasta-love it!

  19. Spinach and sausage is a great combination. This would make a quick weeknight supper.

  20. Simple and definitely looks flavorful. I’ll bet that different cheeses on top would really bring out different flavors in the sausage, too… YUM!

  21. Rich AND healthy – love it

  22. I love a great pasta dish and yours is just that! Love the simplicity!!! Pinning now!!!!

  23. This looks amazing. I love pasta and cannot get enough of it these days. Love the sausage and kale with it. Mini-me tried kale at my sister’s and fell in love with it.

  24. Pasta is a definite favorite in my house, and this dish is the perfect compromise. I love kale in mine, and my husband would rather meat than veggies.

  25. I would SO love this! And yes, spinach would do well also. I’m all over this one. Pinned!

  26. This makes me want to plant a whole bunch of kale so I can pick it fresh over the cool season and make this quick, easy, and tasty dish anytime. Yum!

  32. Looks great!! I love your images also, very clean :)

  34. Cream, sausage and pasta…can’t beat that delicious combo! Happy #Sunday Supper…a day late :)

  35. This is funny, all my favorite 5 ingredient or less dishes is what everyone else seems to like to make too. Like yours! I tend to swap out the cream for lemon juice, but a nice twist!

  39. Oh my goodness Erin! I just tried this recipe last night and I have to say, wow! I have been wanting to use Kale in my cooking but I am often way to scared to mess up a whole creation with missuse of a new ingredient that I hardly ever try new things. But I have to say, my husband and I LOVED THIS! It was really out of this world. I can’t wait to try more recipies with Kale, so post some more!! :) PS-I LOVE your blog!!!!!
