  1. Shape ground sausage into 1/2-inch mini meatballs. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Cook sausage balls until no longer pink in the center, 8 to 12 minutes. Transfer meatballs to a paper-towel-lined plate. Drain all but a tablespoon of the grease from the skillet.
  2. Place carrots, celery, and onion in skillet and cook over medium heat until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Add chicken broth, baby spinach, and Knorr(R) Rice Sides(TM) - Herb & Butter. Cook according to package instructions.
  3. Transfer meatballs back to skillet; cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve topped with Parmesan cheese.


  • Recipe Inspiration:
