  1. Cook sausages as desired (grill or boil stove top). When fully cooked, slice into 1/2 inch pieces and set aside.
  2. Boil water, then cook pasta as directed according to package.
  3. As pasta cooks, combine sun-dried tomatoes (including oil), oregano, garlic, red pepper, black pepper, cayenne and sea salt in a food processor. Pulse for 5 seconds at a time until a thick sauce-like consistency. Adjust to your liking--if you prefer more chunks of tomatoes, do not break down as much.
  4. After pasta is cooked, drain water, toss with spinach to wilt. Then add sun-dried tomato mixture and sausages and toss to coat evenly.
  5. Serve immediately with freshly grated parmesan if desired.
