What to do with Leftover Sausage?

Sausage and Lentils, of course!

This was my first experience cooking lentils and I think they turned out alright.
1 cup puy lentils
1 cup water
1 cup chicken broth
1 carrot, diced
1 celery stick, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced

Heat 1-2 Tbsp olive oil in a large saute pan. Add onions and garlic and cook for several minutes. Once onions are softened, add the rest of the vegetables, lentils and liquids. Stir and cover for 20-30 minutes or until lentils are almost finished cooking (al dente?). Sprinkle with salt and pepper and remove from heat. Let it sit (with the lid on) while you cook the sausage.

Heat a small amount of olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Place sausages in skillet and cook through completely. Remove sausages from heat and let rest. In the same pan as you cooked the sausage, add a small amount of butter and 2-4 cups spinach. Saute for 2-3 minutes or until spinach begins to wilt. Slice sausage into rounds. Place lentils on a plate, add spinach and top with sausage.

Pretty good and really filling.
