This Creamy Chicken Sausage and Spinach Pasta can be ready in less than 20 minutes! The sauce really makes this dish, it’s so luscious, creamy and dreamy! You may even want to drink this right out of the pan (although I don’t recommend that lol).

I used fresh raw chicken sausage. You can use precooked chicken sausage, just cut the cooking time down to 1-2 minutes.
