Sausage with Greens and Noodles

 I stopped at our local farm stand yesterday and came home with two packages of their ground sausage, eggs, peaches, tomatoes, wonderful bread, and heavenly cheeses.  We dropped our daughters at an unschooling camp in Tennessee this afternoon and got home in time to be starving.  I had saved out a pound of the sausage thinking I'd make spaghetti sauce or sausage balls from it but this happened...

I was still thinking spaghetti but remembered it isn't my son's favorite.  I rummaged around for what to put with it and came up with a partially frozen tomato(someone put it way in the back of the fridge, not knowing), part of a bag of frozen collard greens, a box of rotini and some assorted spices.

So, here it is, Sausage with Greens and Noodles:  Feel free to make this your own with fresh herbs/spices/veggies instead of frozen or dried, zucchini "noodles", or whatever you think sounds good.

1 pound ground sausage
1.5-2 cups frozen collard greens(or spinach, or kale, or turnips, etc.)
1 large ripe tomato, diced fine
1 teaspoon each, onion and garlic powder
1 tablespoon or so of worchestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 cup mix of Parmesan and feta cheeses(or other cheese to suit you)

Brown meat.  Add veggies and seasonings and simmer, covered, while the noodles cook.

1 box(12-13 oz) rotini pasta, or shape of choice.  Rotini holds sausage and greens to it really well.

Drain the noodles well and add to meat mixture, add cheeses and let sit for 5 minutes to melt and blend flavors.  Enjoy!
