I love this meal.  It's really flavorful and looks so pretty served too.  You can feel good about eating this one.

Tomato & Spinach Pasta Toss

2 cups penne pasta

1/2 lb. Italian sausage
1 pkg. baby spinach leaves
1 can Italian style diced tomatoes (we also like Hy-Vee diced tomatoes with garlic & olive oil)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
grated Parmesan

Cook pasta.  Crumble meat in large skillet.  Cook on medium-high until cooked through, stirring occasionally.  Drain.  Drain Pasta.  Toss pasta with meat.  Add tomatoes and cheese.  Toss again.  Toss with spinach when ready to serve and add grated Parmesan.
