Cheap Weeknight Dinner: 30-Minute Italian Turkey Sausage, Sun-Dried Tomato and Spinach Skillet

This recipe came about as a result of a package of marked-down Italian turkey sausage I found at the grocery store. At under $3, I couldn't pass it up, particularly as I contemplated the $20 or more chuck roasts! Even not marked down, the turkey sausage seemed like a better choice economically and nutrition-wise (lower in fat, etc.). The skillet meal takes less than 30 minutes, is full of vegetables, and is quite good. The secret, I think, is the sun-dried tomatoes. They add incredible flavor to the dish. I use mild Italian turkey sausage, but if you like heat, go for the spicy sausage. You can serve the dish with rice or the pasta of your choice--penne, spaghetti, fettuccine, or whatever you have available. All you really need to complete the meal is a salad and bread. Any leftovers make great lunches. Enjoy!
