Fire-Roasted Tomato and Spinach Pasta

Good morning from Applejack Lane.  This dish was the recipe of the month at the Lifetime gym at Augusta Health.  It is simple and delicious.

Fire Roasted Tomato and Spinach Pasta
 6 ounces linguine pasta
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 (14.5 ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes with juice
1 (9 ounce) box frozen creamed spinach, thawed
salt and pepper to taste

Cook the linguine to package directions.Drain well.
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 fire-roasted tomatoes and bring to a simmer.  Cook 1 minute before adding the creamed spinach.  Cook and stir 5 minutes.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Stir in the drained linguine into the tomato sauce before serving.

What a beautiful share today. I could smell it before I clicked over. It does look as wonderful as it smells. Yummy. Guess what the Smiths will be having for dinner if not tonight, then soon? Yep.

Have a gorgeous weekend and thank you again for sharing dinner today.
