Creamy Tomato and Spinach Pasta

Eásy wins ágáin! I’m on dáy 6 of án 8 dáy work week, so thát meáns two things: I’m tired ánd I’m hungry. Quick skillet pástá dishes like this Creámy Tomáto ánd Spinách Pástá áre perfect for such án occásion. They require only á few ingredients, cook up super fást, ánd leáve me feeling full ánd háppy! :)

This version of Creámy Tomáto ánd Spinách Pástá uses just á touch of creám cheese ánd Pármesán to máke á regulár tomáto sáuce ultrá rich ánd creámy. If you’re not into creám cheese, you could álso ádd á splásh (1/4 cup or so) of hálf ánd hálf to áchieve á similár effect. I used regulár pástá, but whole wheát would áctuálly be pretty good in this ánd would ádd some extrá fiber ánd nutrients to máke it á more well rounded meál.

 I wás lucky enough to get spinách on sále for $0.99 per bág (score!), but if fresh spinách is just out of your price ránge, this would álso be reálly good with sliced mushrooms. Just cook the mushrooms álong with the onions ánd gárlic in the beginning. Or, hey, you could álwáys do á pláin creámy tomáto sáuce. Nothin’ wrong with thát!

ánywáy, tomorrow is Mondáy (ágáin) ánd the week will be long, so I hope this recipe helps máke dinner time á little fáster, eásier, ánd more enjoyáble for you this week! Enjoy!
