  • 12

    ounces uncooked penne

  • 1

    teaspoon olive oil

  • ounce pine nuts, about 2 tbsp

  • teaspoons minced garlic

  • 10

    ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed ( I used freshly cooked spinach and it was just fine)

  • 2

    tomatoes, chopped

  • 4

    ounces feta cheese, crumbled (optional)

  • 6

    medium olives, black,pitted and chopped ( I prefer the green Greek or Italian olives) (optional)


Cook pasta according to package directions (without butter or oil), drain and set aside. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Add olive oil and heat over medium-high heat until oil sizzles. Add pine nuts and garlic. Cook and stir until pine nuts are golden brown, about 3 minutes. Stir in spinach and tomatoes and cook until heated through, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. Add spinach mixture to pasta and toss until combined. You can top with feta cheese and olives if you would like!!
