I promise, SOON, I will have non-chicken sausage recipes for you all. Until then, this is still yummy!
Spinach & Chicken Sausage
Makes: 2 servings
Weight Watchers PointsPlus (per serving): 8 (easily lowered by using less Panko & Parmesan!)Ingredients:
4 links Spinach & Garlic chicken sausage
2 cups cooked spinach
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup whole wheat Panko breadcrumbs
2 Teaspoons olive oil
Step 1: In a dry pan, over medium heat, add your panko breadcrumbs to the pan and toast stir them continually with a wooden spatula to toast. Toast until they are all a light brown color. Then, set aside off of heat. Add Parmesan cheese to the toasted breadcrumbs and mix.
Step 2: Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil to your pan to a big pan over medium heat. Add your spinach and toss continually to wilt the spinach down (6-8 minutes). Drain any existing water from spinach. I used one big bag of fresh spinach but you could also use as much or as little as you want. With Weight Watchers PointsPlus, spinach is a 0 point vegetable so if you want to make this a BIGGER dish, by all means, add more spinach! Then, set aside.
Step 3: Add other 1 teaspoon of olive oil to the pan, then add sliced chicken sausage. If you bought fully cooked chicken sausage, just cook until they are golden brown.
Step 4: Return spinach to the pan and toss with the chicken sausage. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and breadcrumb mixture, give it a final toss. And serve!!
