This creamy Tuscan sausage pasta is a super easy and incredibly comforting and flavorful weeknight dinner recipe!
Oh man… I really liked this creamy sausage pasta recipe. I kept sneaking bites of the sauce before the pasta was cooked. I’m so bad at doing that. And I always forget to put the water on for the pasta. Sometimes until the sauce is entirely finished. I don’t do new year’s resolutions, but maybe putting the water for the pasta on BEFORE I start making the rest of the stuff is one I should implement. Sigh.
I have a few “Tuscan” (basically the sun-dried tomato + spinach combo and usually some basil and cream and plenty of garlic) recipes on here including my Tuscan chicken pasta, creamy Tuscan chicken breasts, Tuscan salmon, creamy Tuscan ravioli, and Tuscan shrimp. They’re all variations of the same popular recipe. I just can’t get enough of these flavors.
I had some Italian sausage in the fridge that needed using up, so this is where the idea for this recipe came from. Just adding another winner to the Tuscan collection. 😛
Pro tip: I used mild Italian sausage, but if you prefer some heat, try hot Italian or add a pinch of cayenne pepper or some red pepper flakes to this dish.
I used fettuccine in this spinach sausage pasta recipe, but you can use any pasta you have on-hand. I tend to always prefer the “noodles” over the shapes, but to each their own. Want to try making your own pasta to make this dish extra special? My friend Krissy has a homemade pasta recipe for that. 🙂
I’ve made this without basil before, but I do recommend adding it if you can.
I will definitely be making this again. I’d take sausage over chicken most of the time. 🙂

Will you make this Tuscan sausage pasta? Do you love the sun-dried tomatoes/spinach combo as much as I do?
