Sausage and Spinach Pasta Bake

If you have been following my blog you know my family loves sausage.. Neese's sausage! This recipe was in Southern Living several years ago. It was originally Chicken 'n' Spinach but i noticed at the very bottom it had a substitution of sausage for chicken. I made it with sausage the first time and have ever since. I am sure it is tasty with chicken but i have never tried it. I have so many recipes for shredded cooked chicken that it is nice to have one for sausage.
