Quick Garlic Spinach Pasta

Quick Garlic Spinach Pasta

I needed to get dinner on the table fast tonight. We had practices, pickups and places to be so I was looking for something healthy, filling and quick! This pasta is super easy and takes less than 15 minutes to throw together, while being packed with flavor!


I like to make my own pasta sauces and of course I use sauce from a jar too, but tonight I wanted something that felt a little lighter. The olive oil lightly coats the pasta and the crushed red pepper gives it some heat (I used a little more than listed in the recipe, so adjust on the “taste” step!). The spinach and tomatoes give the dish a really fresh taste. YUM!




If you need the meats and still want this on the table fast, some shredded rotisserie chicken tossed in would be perfect!
