Baked Spinach Tomato Pasta

I have a recipe, for once. Because I started out with a recipe.


Ingredients
Serves 4 ( I used less)


2 cups penne
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove minced garlic
4 cups baby spinach 
3 cups diced tomato
1 tbsp oregano
Pinch of Salt 


Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Cook pasta to al dente. 
3. Heat oil, add garlic. Stir until fragrant and then add tomato and spinach. Cook for 4 minutes or until spinach wilts. 
4. Combine with herbs; stir in cheese. 
5. Grease baking pan; pour pasta/veggies in. Cook uncovered for 15 min. Put some more cheese in and bake for 5 more min. 
6. Proceed to OM your new NOMs. 


Because I'm a meat eater, I added some chicken to my dish.

  22. laura - Giant bag of spinach? You can eat it like chips.

    SassyUptownChic - I like loaded salads... not boring salads.

    Macherie - You've never tried spinach?!?!

    One Girl's Wanderlust - Warm and cheesy is a great combination. Much better than cold and cheesy!
