    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Between the two trays, evenly divide the spinach, pasta, tomato sauce, capers, cream, tomatoes, and as much of the chile paste as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper; stir to combine. Add 1 cup of water to each tray. Stir to thoroughly combine.

    Add the sausage (tearing into bite-sized pieces before adding) in an even layer. Tightly cover the trays with foil and bake 30 to 32 minutes, or until the pasta is tender and the sausage is cooked through. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven.

    Finish & serve the dish
    3 Finish & serve the dish
