Cook up a batch of savory Baked Rotini with Sausage and Spinach for your dinner entrée tonight with the family. If you have leftover baked rotini with sausage, you can portion it and freeze it for another meal later.
What You Need
Original recipe yields 8 servings
1 lb. rotini pasta, uncooked
1 lb. Italian turkey sausage links, casings removed
Meanwhile, crumble sausage into large nonstick skillet. Add onions; cook on medium heat 7 to 8 min. or until sausage is done, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in spinach.
Drain pasta. Whisk eggs, milk, lemon zest and dry seasonings in large bowl until blended. Add Alfredo sauce, mozzarella and shredded Parmesan; mix well. Add pasta and sausage mixture; mix lightly.
Combine bread crumbs and grated Parmesan. Spray 12-cup fluted tube pan or 10-inch tube pan with cooking spray; coat with bread crumb mixture, making sure bottom of pan is well coated with crumb mixture. Spoon pasta mixture into pan; press gently with back of spoon to pack pasta mixture into pan. Cover.
Bake 35 to 40 min. or until heated through. Remove pan from oven; remove foil. Let pasta mixture stand in pan 10 min. Meanwhile, heat marinara sauce.
Use rubber scraper to gently release pasta mixture from sides of pan; invert pan onto platter. Gently remove pan. Cut pasta ring into wedges. Serve with marinara sauce.
If you don't have a fluted tube pan, you can instead bake this delicious recipe in a 13x9-inch baking dish, omitting the bread crumbs and grated Parmesan cheese.
Serve with a fresh green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Dressing.
