Sausage & Lemon Carbonara

With school back in session, I'm always looking for quick and easy family dinners.  I made this a couple months ago for my family and it was an instant hit and a new favorite, even with the spinach included. :)  Do you have any easy and healthy go-to family favorites?
Sausage & Lemon Pepper Carbonara
Serves 6
1 package Chicken Italian Sausage links (such as Johnsonville), 12 oz.
1 pound whole grain spaghetti (we also like Barilla Plus)
4 cups baby spinach
2 large eggs
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 clove garlic
juice from one lemon
olive oil
In a large pot, cook pasta according to package directions.  While pasta is cooking, place sausage links in a large skillet and cook over medium heat until browned and cooked throughout.  Remove sausage from skillet.  In skillet (do not clean out any sausage remains, they add flavor!:)) add 3 Tablespoons of olive oil and chopped clove of garlic.  Saute for about 2 minutes over medium heat. 
In a small bown, whisk together eggs, lemon juice and parmesan.  Drain spaghetti and toss into skillet while still hot.  Remove from heat and add egg/parmesan mixture, stirring well as the hot pasta cooks the eggs.  Stir in spinach until wilted.  Slice sausage and add to pasta.  Add freshly ground pepper to taste.
