AMAZING! My husband says it's his new favorite meal. I made this recipe without the basil used a whole onion and whole red bell pepper 16 oz great value Italian sausage and I ripped my spinach in half instead of chopped. I wouldn't mind having more spinach personally but it was enough. Also it was my first time using my instapot! Read More

Second try at pasta in the Instant Pot. Wife loves it. Way better than the first try (my fault not the Pot). Will definitely make this again. Read More

I made this with a few alterations. I had sweet and hot Italian Sausage, not chicken sausage, and used about 1/2 lb. of each. Had frozen spinach, not fresh. I didn't have any basil. Everyone with the exception of my 8 y.o. granddaughter loved it. And she doesn't like anything. Very easy and delicious and will definitely make this often. Read More

I will definitely make it again. The grocery store had no chicken sausage so I used turkey sausage and loved it! Read More

Made as written and this was great except for it was too heavy on the herbs. Most recipes I make are the opposite and they need more but this was potent to the point it was overbearing. This was super simple and I will make again but I will decrease the Italian seasoning to a teaspoon or either just leave out the basil altogether. With that being said this is a great recipe! Italian sausage is full of herbs and seasonings so let it do the work for you! Read More

This dish has become a regular for us. It's very quick and easy. I use any type of pre-packaged chicken sausage links that are available and cut them into bite-sized pieces (no need to remove the casings). I've even made this recipe for company and it's always a hit. Read More
