  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack at about 6 inches from the heat source. Place the sausage links onto a broiler pan, and broil in the preheated oven until the sausage is crispy on the outside and no longer pink on the inside, about 8 minutes. Turn the sausage once as it cooks.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the bow-tie pasta, and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and return to the pot along with the spinach; keep warm over medium-low heat.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a separate pot over medium heat, and stir in the garlic, and cook until the garlic softens and the aroma mellows, about 3 minutes. Add the Alfredo sauce and black pepper, then bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cut the cooked sausage into bite-sized pieces, and add to the simmering Alfredo sauce along with the pasta and spinach. Stir until the pasta is hot and well coated with the sauce.

My husband loved it!!!! I used fresh spinach that I chopped. Cooked it the last 2min. with pasta

Good flavors and an easy dinner. Only thing I would change is the amount of spinach, it was wayyyy too much. I would probably half it next time.

Love this! I tweakedit a bit by using two cans of petite diced tomatoes, half a red bell pepper, half bag frozen spinach, about 8 mushrooms, sliced. After simmering, I added a splash of vodka and 1/2 cup of light cream. My husband LOVED this!

I thought this was easy & very good! I altered with fresh swiss chard, cooking with pasta for last 2 minutes, mushrooms, fresh tomato & my sausage was venison sausage with cheese. Topped it with fresh grated parmesan.

I used five cloves of garlic instead of three because I prefer my food a bit spicier. The hot Italian sausage was a little overwhelming for the sauce, though. Next time, I'll use mild sausage.

Changed from spinach to peas for the kids.
