One Pot Sausage Spinach Pasta

Back in the day I used to work 11-12 hour days. That meant I would leave my house around 6:45 and I generally wouldn’t get home until 6:45 or later. So when it came time for dinner, I was exhausted, usually starving and had no desire what so ever to make anything. But food is one of those must have things to keep you alive. So it’s kind of important.

While Crock Pot meals are always easy and appreciated, when you work such long hours most meals would be way over cooked by the time you get home. Cooking for 12+ hours tends to dry out even soup. Ok so that last part was sarcasm, but you know what I mean.

One Pot Sausage Spinach Pasta

That’s when the whole idea of one pot meals really grabbed my attention. Seriously most recipes you can find floating around are ones that are done in 30 minutes or less and it’s a whole meal! Truly one pot cooking.

And this recipe for one pot sausage spinach pasta is no different. In less than 30 minutes you have dinner on the table and there’s not a ton of dishes afterwards to worry about cleaning. Because by the time dinner is done and everyone’s eaten, the last thing you want to do is sit at the kitchen sink washing a ton of pots and pans.

An easy to make one pot sausage and spinach pasta that is ready to serve in 30 minutes.

  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 1/2 cups egg noodle pasta
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, , torn or chopped into small pieces
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar


  1. Slice the chicken sausage into thin slices and set aside.

This was a hit! And so so easy- I even left out the onion because I didn’t have one but it didn’t matter at all. This is definitely going on the menu plan!!
