- 12 oz pasta (we used mostaccoli)
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic, chopped
- 3-4 roma tomatoes, large dice
- 1 cup red onions, sliced
- 2 oz spinach
- parmesan or feta for garnish
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 3 tbsp white wine
- 1/2 tsp salt
In a pot bring some water to a boil and cook your pasta. Remember to generously salt your water. Cook your pasta al dente by following the package directions. Drain and set aside. In a large skillet heat 2 tsp of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add your garlic and cook until fragrant. Then add the tomatoes, onions and pasta. Sauté for about 5 minutes until the pasta gets a little brown and the tomatoes soften up a bit.
In a small bowl, place all your ingredients for the vinaigrette and stir until combined.
Next, add the spinach and vinaigrette mixture. Sauté for another 4-6 minutes or until the spinach is wilted. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Remove from heat and serve with parmesan or feta. For protein, we topped ours with chicken cutlets.
This dish is so quick and easy to whip up. Its not your typical pasta dish but it’s still delicious. Hope you enjoy!
