This pasta bake is easy enough for a weeknight dinner but “fancy” enough for a dinner party. You can make this ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze it for later too. I am a big fan of make ahead dishes!! If you are baking this after refrigerating the dish, you will want to add a few minutes to the baking time just to make sure it is warm all the way through.
The secret ingredient in this Cheesy Italian Sausage and Spinach Pasta Bake is a container of chive and onion cream cheese. It adds lots of flavor and makes this pasta bake super creamy. I need to start using the chive and onion cream cheese in more dishes. It is really wonderful!
