Recipe from Donna Smith

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 8 persons

Ingredients

2 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1 lb Italian Mild Sausage, casings removed
4 oz mushrooms, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 large onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
4 cups low sodium chicken broth
28 oz can diced tomatoes
2 heaping Tablespoons tomato paste
8 oz rotini pasta, uncooked
8 oz rough chopped fresh spinach
2 Tablespoons fresh basil chiffonade (Optional but delicious)
1/2 cup cottage or ricotta cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
2.5 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded

Instructions

1. In a large Dutch oven or casserole pot, heat 1 Tablespoon oil over medium heat until simmering. Add the Italian Sausage and saute until no pink remains. Remove sausage from pan to drain. Wipe out the Dutch oven with a paper towel.

2. Add remaining oil and butter and heat on medium heat until butter stops foaming. Add the mushrooms and red pepper. Saute until mushrooms release liquid, about 5 minutes. Add the onion and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and stir until you smell the garlic. Add chicken broth, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, oregano, basil, salt and pepper. Bring to a fast simmer and add the pasta. Return to a fast simmer and add the Italian Sausage. Reduce heat to medium-low and slow simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the spinach and basil chiffonade (if using).

3. Pre-heat broiler / grill to high.
*** You may need to transfer the contents to a suitable dish to go under the broiler or grill.
Make the cheese topping by combining cottage or ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Spoon the cheese mixture over the mixture and place under the broiler to melt and bubble the cheese. Serve in big bowls with garlic toast for dipping.
