This quickly became a family favorite the first time I made it.  My son Ryan often offers to make this for dinner when he is home... 
Ingredients
2 cups Penne pasta (7-oz) uncooked
1-1/2 lbs hot or mild Italian sausage, casing removed
1 pkg (6-oz) baby spinach leaves (7 cups)
1 can (14 1/2-oz) diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano, undrained
2 cups Kraft shredded low-moisture part skim Mozzarella cheese
2 Tbsp Kraft 100% grated Parmesan cheese
1/8 cup Italian dressing
 
Directions
1. Cook pasta as directed on package.  Meanwhile, crumble meat into large deep skillet.  Cook on medium-high heat until cooked through, stirring occasionally; drain.
2. Add spinach, tomatoes and dressing; cook 2 minutes or until spinach is wilted, stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat; cover to keep warm.
3. Drain pasta; place in large serving bowl.  Add meat mixture and cheeses; mix lightly.
