Whew! It’s been quite a morning. Do you notice anything different? Here, let me twirl around a couple times for you to get a better look. That’s right, my blog has been beautified! I was looking for a change and Emma over at Indiechick designs made it happen. She put up with all my quips and quirks and together we were able to put together the ultimate Mommie Cooks blog. I LOVE the way it looks and I hope you love it too. Thank you Emma!
Now, let’s take this new beauty for a spin and see how she does with a super yummy sausage pasta recipe. I don’t know about your family, but ours loves a good juicy hunk of sausage. Italian sausage, chicken sausage, andouille sausage, chorizo, you name it, we’ll eat it and love every bite of it. I just happened to have a pound of the stuff burning a hole in my freezer the other night and decided to see what I could do with it for a quick and healthy dinner.
Enter Pasta Yummy. Why the yummy you may ask? Well, the entire time my kids were eating this meal they just kept saying, Yummy Mommy! Yep, it’s not earth shattering, but it works. Here’s what you’ll need for this one dish meal:
8 Oz. of Bowtie Pasta
1 Pd of Italian Sausage, crumbled
1 Pd of Frozen Spinach or 1 Bag of Fresh, Chopped
1 Can of Artichoke Hearts
2 Green Onions
4 Garlic Cloves
11/2 Cups of Chicken Stock
1/2 Cup of Parmesan Cheese
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Heat up a pot of salted water to boil and cook your noodles up al dente. While the noodles are cooking, throw your sausage in a large skillet cooking it on medium high heat.
Once your sausage is fully cooked set it aside, drain the excess fat and add in the garlic to the same pan. Let it cook up for a minute and then add in the broth, spinach, artichokes, and onion.
Cook the mixture uncovered on medium high for about 5 minutes until veggies are heated through. Turn your heat back down to low and add the noodles and sausage back into the pan.
I’m getting a hankering for sausage just looking at this picture! Stir your pan of goodness together, making sure it’s mixed well. Finally add in your parmesan and combine. Give it a minute or two to heat back up and you should be ready to serve up some pasta yummy. Here’s the meal still in the pan.
And here’s the meal just minutes before being devoured my hungry family of boys. Pasta Yummy!

Not only does your website look fab – this meal looks super delicious!! The pictures are amazing as well. I don't live veggies but looking at these makes me want to cook them for my family!

This is the kind of dish that I really love, because it's not overly complicated, it's healthy and it's a family pleaser. This would fit well into a cookbook for busy working mums who want to serve their fam good food.
I love the new look, I was thinking I may need a refresher, sometimes it's just time for a change! 🙂
OK Chick says
I'm looking for a fantastic brunch recipe. Whatcha got???
Girl, I have a couple doozies for ya. If you're looking for something sweet, I have an easy monkey bread that's beautiful and delicious to boot and if you'd rather have an egg dish, i have an A.mazing quiche that only uses two eggs for two quiches, but you'd never know it. If you want the, email me at the mommiecooks address and I'll pass them on to you.
