Fall soccer season is underway which means - we are carbo loading. (Like we need an excuse to load up on carbohydrates.) We love our carbs in this family and pasta is at the top of our list of favorite carbs.
Typically we have our carbohydrate dinners on Friday nights - in preparation for Saturday soccer games, of course. (If only cheering for my favorite player actually burned as many calories as actually playing in a soccer game.) I would like to think that I'm making pasta dinners out of support for our soccer playing seventeen year old but the truth is - we don't need any extra excuses to eat pasta.
4 ounces spaghetti
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 ounces chicken sausage, casings removed
14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 cups fresh spinach
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Italian blend cheese
Remove preheated bowl from oven. Spray with cooking spray. Spoon pasta mixture into hot bowl and top with remaining cheese.
Bake 20 minutes at 500.
Slice into wedges and serve.
As for the 2016 travel soccer season - it's going well. These girls have played in the most extreme heat but smiled through it all.
These are just a few pictures of my favorite player from last weekends games.
Here's to carbo loading for the fans.
