Pasta with Sausage and Gruyere sauce

Since my children were drawn to the free samples at the grocery store, we purchased some roasted garlic and gruyere cheese chicken sausage. I really couldn't decide what to do with it. I was leaning towards grilling it but what sides should I serve. In the end, I decided to make a pasta dish. It is always obvious when my daughter likes something since she will even eat it the next day. This recipe is one of those meals.
Pasta with sausage and Gruyere sauce
1 lb. shell pasta
12 oz. sausage
1 garlic, minced
1 cup spinach
1/8 cup red bell pepper, chopped small
1 Tbsp flour
2 cups milk
4 oz. Gruyere cheese, shredded
Topping parsley, chopped

  1. Boil the pasta until al dente.
  2. In a large skillet, brown the sausage.
  3. With a slotted spoon, remove the sausage onto a paper towel lined plate. Set aside.
  4. Add the garlic, spinach, and red bell pepper. Saute for 1 minute.
  5. Sprinkle the flour over the spinach mixture. Stir gently for 1 minute.
  6. Whisk in the 2 cups of milk and allow to cook for 10 minutes.
  7. Stir in the Gruyere cheese.
  8. Once the cheese has melted, add the pasta and sausage. 
  9. Mix to combine and allow to cook for one minute.
  10. Top with parsley and serve.
