Spinach Tomato Pasta

a bowl of spaghetti with spinach, blistered tomatoes and pine nuts

With blistered tomatoes, fresh spinach, zesty lemon, and crunchy pine nuts, I think you’ll like twirling your fork around this one-pot meal.





Smash garlic with the flat side of a Chef’s knife.

Pine nuts heat skillet over medium low heat, add pine nuts and toast for 3-5 minutes, occasionally stirring or shaking the pan.

Pasta cook according to package directions. Drain, but collect ½ cup pasta water, set aside.

Spinach and Tomatoes Dry the pasta pot. Heat over medium heat, add oil, garlic and crushed red pepper, cook 2-3 minutes. Add tomatoes. If using fresh tomatoes, poke several with the tip of a sharp knife to release juices; cover with lid. Cook 10 minutes, shaking pot occasionally. Remove from heat. Add spinach, stirring to blend with tomatoes. Add lemon zest and juice. Return to heat, add pasta, ½ cup pasta water. Stir until spinach wilts. Sprinkle pine nuts before serving.
