5 Days of Cooking Challenge....

I have challenged Steph Anderson with teaching me to cook 5 easy and healthy meals.  I have yet to meet with her regarding my challenge BUT I have decided to do 5 days of healthy meals myself via the internet (which duh why can't the internet teach me to cook, hahah).

Here is what was for dinner tonight, it got a big thumbs up from Steve!

Bow-Tie Pasta (or whatever pasta you want) with Spinach and Feta Chicken Sausage!

  • Preparation:
  • (12-oz.) package farfalle (bow-tie) pasta
  • 3/4 pound Italian sausage, casings removed 
  • medium onion, chopped 
  • garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar 
  • (14 1/2-oz.) can chicken broth 
  • (9-oz.) package fresh spinach*
  • 6 ounces crumbled feta cheese 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced


  1. 1. Prepare pasta according to package directions.
  2. 2. Meanwhile, cook sausage in a Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring often, 8 to 10 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink. Add onion, and sauté 5 minutes. Add garlic, and sauté 1 minute. Stir in vinegar, and cook 3 minutes. Add chicken broth; cook 5 minutes. Stir in spinach and next 3 ingredients; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Stir in hot cooked pasta, and serve immediately.
  3. *Fresh baby spinach may be substituted- and you SHOULD substitute b/c it's awesome.....
