Spinach and Tomato Pasta


  • 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


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!
