Dinner Tonight: Tomato and Spinach Pasta Toss



Barbara Meyers of Oregon writes that she found this recipe on the back of a mozzarella package, and makes it “at least once a week. Yummy, healthy and quick.”

  • 1 pound mild Italian sausage
  • 2 cups rotini, uncooked
  • 1 14.5-ounce can Italian-style tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 6-ounce bag baby spinach leaves
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese

In Dutch oven, brown sausage. Cook rotini and drain. When rotini is done, add to sausage, along with tomatoes, spices. Heat through. Add spinach; cover and cook till wilted, about 5 minutes. Mix and add cheeses. Heat through till cheese melts.
