Brown Rice Spaghetti with Chicken Sausage & Fresh Spinach

by Nicole on April 11, 2012

Morning! It’s a cool 44 degrees this morning….brrr. At least the sun is out right?

Last night I made a delicious dinner that I have to share with you. I was having one of those nights where I didn’t want to eat or cook anything, but quite honestly, I spend too much weekly at the food store to have take out again. For 3-4 weeks I barely bought anything because the thought of cooking anything made me want to crawl into a hole. Egg drop soup and steamed veggie dumplings were ordered too many times. This week was not the case, so I had to figure out something to cook.

Lately peering in my very stocked pantry just makes me more angry, which usually leads to me sitting on the couch, floor, chair, anywhere but the kitchen. Last night I came across brown rice spaghetti and dinner just came to me.  Garlic & oil is one of those dinners my mom would just throw together during the week occasionally. Sometimes she would add clams. Garlic & oil is a definite comfort food for me. Apparently I needed that last night.


This was probably the best thing I’ve made in a long time. No it’s not the lowest in calories, but I promise the taste delivers. Danny and I didn’t talk until dinner was over….which only took about 10 minutes. Maybe less. I’m glad I didn’t make the entire pound, because I would have eaten it. No doubt.

Today is a Koga workout day. I’m off to the gym in 30 minutes to work it out before an insane day.

Enjoy everyone!

What’s the best thing you’ve eaten lately? Please share and inspire my bored tastebuds!

It’s Autumn here in South Africa at the moment and the morning temperatures are the same here as well. 44 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s not nice :(
This sounds like a great tasting recipe. Glad you found something that you were able to eat.
What I like lately is Butternut and Split Pea soup made with some beef stock in the Slow Cooker or Whole wheat pasta topped with ground beef seared in onions, garlic, parmesan cheese and olive oil. Served with salad.

I just sent the link to the wife and printed it out. The email simply said: “we should make this.” Thanks for the share.

I love just garlic and oil on pasta. Sometimes I’ll add anchovies, and always red pepper flakes, but I love the simplicity and taste of just plain olive oil and garlic. This is something I would like and I’ve made very similar dishes in the past. The last good thing I ate was mashed cauliflower with roasted garlic :)
