1 Tbsp. olive oil

8 ounces sweet Italian sausage links, removed from casing and crumbled

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 pouch Bertolli® Premium Champignon & Portobello Mushroom Pasta Sauce

1 cup fresh bread, torn into small pieces

1/3 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese

2 Tbsp. toasted pine nuts

8 cups baby spinach or arugula leaves

  4. Meanwhile, bring spinach and 1/4 cup water to a boil in 5-quart saucepot over high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook covered, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Season, if desired, with salt and black pepper. Evenly arrange spinach on plates with slotted spoon, then top with mushrooms. Serve with remaining Sauce, heated.
