Source: Budget Bytes
2 T Olive Oil
4 cloves Garlic
1.25 lb Italian Sausage
3 oz Tomato Paste
15 oz Can of Diced Tomatoes
1/2 T Italian Seasoning
1/2 c Water
8 oz Pasta
15 oz Ricotta Cheese
1/4 c Grated Parmesan
1 c Shredded Mozarella
3 c Baby Spinach (optional)
1. Mince the garlic and cook it with olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until softened (2 minutes). Squeeze the Italian Sausage from it's casing into the skillet. Break it up and cook until thoroughly browned.
2. Add the tomato paste to the skillet. Cook and stir for about two minutes. Add the diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning and a 1/2 cup of water. Bring to a simmer then reduce the heat to low.
3. As the sauce simmers on low, cook the pasta according to the package directions (boil for 7-10 minutes or until al dente). Drain the pasta in a colander.
4. Stir the drained pasta into the sauce. Add the fresh spinach and stir in until wilted.
5. In a small bowl, combine the ricotta, parmesan, a dash of salt and some freshly ground black pepper. Stir until everything is evenly combined. Drop the ricotta cheese mixture onto the sauce and pasta by spoonfuls. Sprinkle one cup of shredded mozzarella over top and cover with a lid (or foil) to allow the cheese to melt (about 5-10 minutes, heat should still be on low). Serve hot!
