    Spinach and Tomato Pasta

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, cut in half
    • 1 cup loosely packed chopped spinach, fresh or frozen in bags
    • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
    • 2 cups cooked whole wheat pasta, in small shapes like macaroni, rotelli, or small shells
    • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
    • 1 tablespoon toasted pine nuts
    • salt, to taste
    • pepper, to taste

    Instructions

    Step 1
    Add olive oil to a medium nonstick saucepan or skillet heated over medium-high heat. After about 20 seconds when the oil is nice and hot, add the tomatoes, spinach, and garlic and continue to saute for a few minutes until spinach is soft and bright green and tomatoes are soft. Add some salt and pepper to taste if desired.
    Step 2
    Stir in the cooked pasta and continue to cook and stir the mixture for a minute or two to heat up the pasta and blend the flavors. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top and turn off the heat. Let the dish sit for a couple of minutes, sprinkle pine nuts over the top, and serve!
