Sausage with Spinach and Onions

A couple of weeks ago you voted for the meal that you were mostly looking for recipes for and a large number of you said you wanted breakfast options. This is for breakfast but I did take the leftovers for lunch. This recipe froze and reheated very well to make it easier for you if you are working and want to cook once for the week. 🙂

Samantha and I thought it would be fun to offer you a choice of the same recipe made two different ways.  You get to vote in the comments which one you would be more likely to make. If you do make it please let me know.

Samantha's version

 Sausage with Spinach and Onions- Version 1


1 pack sausage
1 bunch green onions, chopped
2 diced tomatoes
1 onion, chopped
2 portabello mushroom caps, cubed
1 large thing of spinach (not sure how much, just the bigger container)
4 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon rosemary

Ask husband to cook the sausage while you prepare the other ingredients. Steal a kiss every time you pass the stove.

Remove sausage from the pan. I took over all cooking while my husband did dishes and started cleaning up the substantial mess I can’t help but make when I cook.

In remaining grease (add some evoo if it doesn’t seem like enough), stir fry onion, rosemary, and garlic for about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms and stir for a minute. Add green onions, tomatoes, and spinach and stir until spinach has wilted/is done. Stir sausage back into the pan. Admire your colorful creation.

I added some Parmesan Cheese to mine, but that’s because I add cheese to pretty much everything.
