Directions:

1.  Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. In a heavy skillet over medium-high heat, warm the oil (using the amount desired) over medium-high heat. Add the sausage, if using, and cook, stirring a few times, for 5 minutes. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 3 more minutes. Stir in the spinach until wilted.

2.  Meanwhile, cook the pasta in the salted water until al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the pasta cooking water.

3.  Add the pasta to the skillet along with ½ cup of the cooking water. Stir over medium heat until the liquid is almost absorbed. Add the goat cheese, and stir just until creamy, about 1 minute, pouring in a little more pasta cooking water if desired. Serve right away.
