You will relish in the taste and flavor of this dish it will become one of your families favorite foods.

 Turkey Sausage Pasta There are some recipe sites you just love because they always seem to post recipes that fit you perfectly. May be because they have the same tastes as you, or because they are genius. When I read Proceed with Caution, I prefer to think both. So when this Turkey Sausage Ragu post when up, and I said I had to make it, I meant it. I had all the ingredients except the turkey sausage and I knew my friends would love it.

Well, not only was it better than expected, but I ate the whole batch in two days. The chili flakes give a wonderfiul tiny bit of spice that just plays up the fresh garlic flavor. The sweet canalization of the onions and balsamic with the tomatoes and the lovely addition of spinach make all the difference. A definite winner and now a voted staple with my friends, I hope you like it as much as we dd.
