What You Need

  • 1 package Johnsonville┬« Hot Italian Sausage Meat
  • 2 cups spaghetti noodles
  • 6 cloves garlic, sliced or minced
  • 2 bunches swiss chard, ribs removed and cut in strips (can substitute any sturdy green vegetable of choice)
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated


  1. Break sausage meat apart. Cook in 12-inch skillet over medium heat until thoroughly browned, about 8 minutes.

  2. Add garlic and Swiss chard leaves (or your preferred green); cook, stirring, until wilted and tender, about 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, cook spaghetti noodles according to package directions until al dente; drain, reserving 1/2 cup of pasta water.

  4. Add drained pasta to sausage mixture with 1/3 of the Parmesan cheese, and enough of the pasta water to gently coat. Cook, stirring, until thoroughly mixed, about 1 minute.

  5. Serve pasta with remaining cheese and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.
