Turkey Spinach Pasta Bake

I swiped this from Budget Bytes.  I cant say how much I love this blog!  Ive said before that her recipes are great and cheap but not always healthy.  This recipe I did not adapt, though.

Yields 9 servings
350 calories per serving

1 box whole wheat penne
1 pkg frozen spinach, thawed
12 oz Italian turkey sausage
2 c part skim mozzarella
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried basil
pinch red pepper flakes
cracked black pepper
24 oz marinara sauce

Preheat oven to 350.
Cook pasta according to box directions.
Drain pasta, return to pot & stir in marinara sauce.

Meanwhile, cook sausage over medium heat.
Cut into pieces and set aside.

Place spinach, cheese, garlic powder, basil, red pepper flakes, & black pepper into a bowl.
Add sausage to bowl & stir well.

Coat a 9x9 pan with cooking spray.
Pour half of the pasta mixture on the bottom of the pan.
Layer half of the spinach mixture on top.
Repeat layers once.

Bake for 30 minutes.
