Pasta with Sausage, Spinach and Mushrooms

I made this about a week after the funeral and it was probably the first food, we enjoyed.

This is the kind of meal, hubby likes, when he arrives home from work.  It has a little bit of everything and is warm and filling.  I got to use up leftover cold cuts, leftover spinach, a can of artichokes which was hanging around too long and a bottle of sundried tomatoes which also was taking up space.

Pasta with Sausage, Spinach, and Artichokes (adapted from Taste of Home )


12 ounces pasta
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/3 pound cold cuts (I used turkey pastrami), chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 cup canned artichokes, chopped
1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon parsley
3/4 t. black pepper
1/4 cup white wine
1 cup fresh spinach

Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain, reserving 1/3 cup of pasta water. Keep pasta warm.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add meat to pan and cook to just heat.
Add the onions, artichokes, tomatoes, garlic, oregano, parsley, salt and pepper to the skillet. Mix well to combine and cook for 5 minutes. 
Add in the white wine and cook for 2 minutes. Toss in the spinach and cook for another two minutes.
Add the pasta to the pan with the vegetables, along with the reserved pasta water, and toss to combine.

Eat and enjoy.
