Italian Sausage, Spinach and Pasta

My sister Jenny emailed me this recipe that she found in the Boston Globe. Her family loved it! (and she has picky eaters) I haven't tried it yet but will make it for dinner this coming week.

2 lbs (spicy) Italian Sausage
(cut in 1/2 lengthwise and sliced into 1 inch pieces)
1 large onion, chopped
5 to 6 c low-sodium chicken broth
1 lb thin spaghetti, broken into thirds
2 pks baby spinach
1 c half and half
1/2 c parm cheese
Heat large pot over medium heat and add the sausage. After about 2 min. add onion and cook stirring until sausage is cooked through - about 5 more minutes. Drain off fat, add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add the spaghetti and cook until al dente, about 8 min. Add spinach and cover to wilt, about 3 min. Stir in half and half and parm cheese. Continue to stir until sauce thickens, about 5 min. Serve immediately. Enjoy!!!
