Gluten Free Baked Penne With Sausage and Spinach

I love a good pasta dish.  I'd have to say, this Gluten Free Baked Penne with Sausage and Spinach is just that...a good pasta dish.  The fresh spinach and the tomatoes keep this dish tasting light.  You can use an Italian sausage, but I really like the combo of a chicken and apple sausage to pair with the spinach, tomatoes and olive oil.   Topped with the melted mozzarella and parmesan cheeses, this pasta is high on the "yum" meter!

8 oz. gluten free penne pasta
2 tsp olive oil
8 oz. chicken and apple or Italian sausage, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) Italian seasoned diced tomatoes
1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz.)
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Cook penne according to package directions, until tender to bite.  Drain.  Pour oil into a  large skillet and over medium high heat cook sausage.  Just as sausage is almost done, add garlic.  Add spinach and stir until wilted, about 5 minutes.  Stir in tomatoes with juice, salt, pepper, and cooked pasta.  Pour pasta mixture into a 13 x 9 baking dish.  Sprinkle with mozzarella and parmesan cheeses and bake in a 350 degree F. oven until cheese is browned and bubbling, 25-30 minutes.
