  • 1 box of penne pasta
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, chopped small
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 4-6 oz fresh spinach
  • 4 oz feta cheese


Cook pasta.

Drain the pasta and use the same pot to heat oil and cook garlic until the garlic is softened.

Add a can of diced tomatoes, basil and lemon zest and cook a few minutes longer, stirring often.

Add the pasta back in. Stir in some fresh spinach (I used almost a full bag, but I really like spinach). Stir until warmed through. Salt and pepper to taste.

Serve on plates with feta cheese sprinkled on top.
