    Serves: 3 

    • 185g linguine pasta
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 (400g) tin diced tomatoes, with juice
    • 280g frozen spinach, thawed
    • 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the linguine and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
    2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Cook 1 minute before adding the spinach. Cook and stir 5 minutes; season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir the drained linguine into the tomato sauce before serving.

    This is a good start! I added a lot more garlic, chopped 1 sm onion, fresh basil, and a bunch of Italian seasoning (all to taste) and let it simmer for 20 min or so while I made garlic bread - it was SO good! I was completely surprised - I had a back up jar of sauce in case! Tasted like something from a classy Italian restaurant! Thank you - this is staying in the rotation!  -  01 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this last night for a Valentines Dinner. I have to say this was quick and easy. I used a bit more chopped garlic, about 3 Tbl. of chopped onion saute'd up, a l lb. box of whole wheat pasta and I added in Shrimp and it came out Fabulous. This is a keeper and I will be making it in the future for company. Just add a interesting salad and you have a great dinner. It literally took me ten minutes to throw this sauce together.  -  15 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    OK, this pasta recipe is still awesome even with these mistakes: I used fire-roasted tomatoes used for chili, which had minced jalepeno in the sauce. I dumped in a whole box of spaghetti and THEN read the dish called for just 6 ounces of it. I couldn't find creamed spinach and so used chopped instead The result is spaghetti with chunks of tomato and spinach and it was really good, and even better the second day around. I will certainly try this recipe again, if only to see what happens when I actually follow the directions.  -  01 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
