Honey Is Magic
In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.
Move cooked onions to side of skillet and add crumbled sausage. Sauté until meat is browned. Stir in tomatoes. Add spinach leaves and red pepper flakes. Stir, cover and cook 5-10 minutes until spinach is just wilted.
Spoon sauce over pasta. Add ½ cup Parmesan cheese. Toss to combine. Serve topped with remaining cheese.
