Chicken Sausage and Veggies with Spaghetti

Quick and easy meal that is just as good heated up the next day for lunch!  As with all my meals, these amounts are only suggestions - you can adjust them to fit your preference.

What you will need:
1 small onion - chopped
1-2 garlic cloves - I love garlic so I use a lot - mince it and let it sit - it's healthier this way!
Good for you oil - olive, coconut, grape seed
2 cups fresh or frozen veggies - I like using peppers, squash, zucchini (yes technically

they are all fruits but...) broccoli, cauliflower will also work, just may need longer cooking time.
1 package of chicken sausage cut into slices or pieces - any flavor will work, but the Italian, mozzarella and roasted garlic, and tomato basil will flavor best with this dish.
1 cup of chicken stock - maybe a little more depending on how "saucy" you want your dish
Half package of pasta  - I used barilla gf spaghetti
Fresh tomatoes, kale and/or spinach
Basil, fresh mozzarella or parmesan - if desired!

What to do:
Start to boil water for pasta
Saute onion in oil until it starts to soften,
Add in veggies and cook until starting to soften
Add in chicken sausage, stock and garlic (I add this later then normal since I do not want it to get brown and bitter).
Start cooking pasta as soon as water boils and cook until just shy of al dente - my package said 10-11 minutes - I cooked it about 8 minutes
Add the drained pasta (I scoop it out, not drain it - this saves some of the water and helps with to make the sauce) to the chicken mixture.
Mix in the fresh tomatoes, kale and/or spinach stir until all is well heated and spinach starts to wilt.

Top with fresh mozzarella or parmesan, basil and Enjoy!
