Baked Quinoa with Chicken Sausage and Spinach

Another make ahead meal?  Yes, please!  This was super delicious…made early in the afternoon and reheated before serving.  Frank really, REALLY loved it, which made me very happy, considering how healthy it is (well, minus all the cheese I used, but come on…who can resist cheese!).

I can’t wait to make this again, using a different protein and cheese, different veggies…whatever it is, it’ll be just as good.  And easy.  Yum.

Baked Quinoa with Chicken Sausage & Spinach

1 cup quinoa, cooked according to package instructions
1 package chicken sausage (I used Trader Joe’s Fontina, Spinach & Roasted Garlic), cut into bite size pieces
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves
1 bag baby spinach
salt and pepper
1 1/2 cups shredded swiss/gruyere blend cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Heat oil in a large skillet.  Add garlic and onion, then sausage.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cook through, then add spinach.  Add salt and pepper again to taste.  Cook until spinach is slightly wilted.

Pour sausage mixture into a deep pie plate, then add quinoa.  Mix together.  Top with cheese and bake for about 20 minutes, until cheese has melted and everything is heated through.
