For the Pasta:
For cooking the pasta follow the instructions on the cover.
Tip: Put the pasta only when the water is boiling well. Do not add oil as the boiling water is good enough.
Once cooked always reserve the cooking water and drain the pasta to a colander.
For the Sauce:
In a non-stick pan heat 2 tsp of olive oil.
Don't over heat it.
Add the chopped green onions, garlic and saute.
Don't cover it or u will loose the green color of the onions.
If you cannot get hold of green onions you can use red onions or white ones.
Once the onions are sauteed add the sausages (chopped and quartered) to it and mix well.
Add spinach paste and saute for a minute.
Now add the drained pasta and mix it carefully.
To give the pasta depth add some of the cooking liquid that you saved. About half a cup or so to thicken the sauce.
Let it cook for 2 minutes.
Now add the mint sauce and toss the pasta for 3-4 minutes
Add salt and pepper. Be careful with the pepper because you have already added a spicy mint sauce.
Garnish with chopped onions and spray quarter of a lemon over it(optional).
Serve it pipping hot with some cream.
