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.

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.

One Pot Sausage Spinach Pasta
Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:25 minutes
Total Time:30 minutes


  • 8 oz chicken sausage
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup onion , finely diced
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles
  • 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


  • Slice the chicken sausage into thin slices and set aside.
  • In the bottom of a large skillet or heavy stock pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add chicken sausage and cook until browned on both sides. Add in onions and sautee for 2-3 minutes more until the onions become translucent.
  • Add in the can of diced tomatoes and green chiles undrained and gently deglaze pan (scrape off browned bits of butter and sausage from bottom of pan)
  • Add in pasta to pot and pour in chicken broth to just cover pasta. Stir the pasta into the liquid well. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer covered until the pasta is cooked through. Usually around 10 minutes. Stir a few times during cook time to prevent sticking and to make sure all pasta cooks evenly.
  • Remove lid and add in fresh spinach in several small batches. Stir each batch until spinach becomes wilted before adding in next batch.
  • Sprinkle with shredded cheese, and cook until cheese is melted.

  1. 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!!

  2. I love Pasta so much and I would love to try this one. It looks very delicious. I think my kids would love this. Thanks for sharing it.

  3. Thanks much for this recipe. I have been looking for a different type of sausage recipe like this after being stuck in a rut of sausage and cabbage. I’ve pinned it so I can make it soon.

  4. I made this tonight and it was really good. I used small penne pasta because that is what I had on hand and it worked perfectly. I used just plain diced tomatoes and sprinkled on some garlic powder. I forgot to put on the cheese, but it was excellent without it and saved a few calories. Thank you for the recipe; it is a keeper.

  5. Amanda, This looks delicious!! Pinned and Stumbled to share.
