I’ve been known to lean on store-bought sauces because it’s one of the easiest shortcuts you can take in the kitchen for pasta night. And who’s going to argue with that? Less time, fewer ingredients… sounds pretty good to me.

And when you combine two different sauces – in this case, Bertolli Traditional Marinara and Alfredo Sauce – you get a delicious combination otherwise known as rosa sauce.

It’s a short-cut sauce I happen to love and encourage you to try if you haven’t already. Might I suggest the combo for Valentine’s Day? Whether you celebrate or not, this hearty spinach-sausage pasta with a rich and flavorful sauce is the perfect excuse to treat yourself.

Bertolli Red and White Sauces

This five-ingredient spinach-sausage pasta is all about the sauce. In this case, two Bertolli Sauces mixed together to make a creamy rosa sauce.

Other Ingredients You’ll Need

Once you have your sauces you only need three more simple ingredients:

  • Fusilli pasta
  • Mild Italian sausage
  • Fresh spinach

Boil the pasta and, while it’s going, cook the sausage in a large pan over medium heat.

Add the fresh spinach and cook the two together until the spinach has wilted.

Once the sausage and spinach are cooked add your sauces. You don’t need any other seasonings – the Bertolli Sauces bring all the flavor you need.

Stir to combine it all together and simmer it until your pasta is ready. Add the pasta, toss it in all that saucy goodness and dinner is ready.

  1. Just made this tonight and it was AMAZING!!! What a simple and fast recipe I loved it!!! I did add Italian seasoning, salt and pepper and some cayenne pepper to spice it up a bit but it didn’t need it (just my preference). Hope to make more of your recipes soon! ❤😊
