Chicken Sausage, Spinach Pasta Bake

Recently when I was doing my bi-weekly grocery shopping at Aldi, I picked up a package of chicken, feta and spinach sausages. They were located near the pork bratwurst and the little breakfast sausage links. Now I’ve looked at them before, picked them up and read the ingredients a time or two but have never purchased a package. My hubby is adamant about his sausages. They should contain only pork and beef. He could care less if his sausages contain animal bi-products and fillers. As long as they contain pork or beef and fat, he’s happy. But not me. I like to know what’s in the food I eat:)

“Never Any” Brand

Aldi is great when it comes to following the latest food trends. Offering low carb options, keto friendly options, vegan  and all natural options. Aldi has what is called the “Never Any” option you can choose from also. Personally, I look for the Never Any logo when I purchase meat and seafood products at Aldi. FYI, this post wasn’t in anyway sponsored by Aldi. We just like to pass on to our readers the products that we like and therefore recommend you try:)
