Creamy Tomato And Spinach Pasta

Prep
Cook
Serves 4people
Ingredients
1/2
pound penne pasta
1
small onion
2
cloves garlic
1
(15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/2
teaspoon dried oregano
1/2
teaspoon dried basil
pinch red pepper flakes
1/2
teaspoon salt
freshly cracked pepper
2
tablespoons tomato paste
2
ounces cream cheese
1/4
cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2
(9 ounce) bag of fresh spinach
Directions
1.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add pasta and cook until tender (7-10 minutes). Drain the pasta in a colander.
2.
While waiting for pasta to cook, dice the onion and mince the garlic. Cook both in a large skillet with olive oil over medium-low heat until softened and transparent (5 minutes).
3.
Add the diced tomatoes (with juices), oregano, basil, red pepper flakes, salt, and some freshly cracked pepper to the skillet with the onions and garlic. Add the tomato paste and ½ cup of water to the skillet and stir until the tomato paste is dissolved into the sauce.
4.
Turn the heat down to low. Cut the cream cheese into a few pieces and then add them to the skillet with the tomato sauce. Use a whisk to stir the sauce until the cream cheese has fully melted in and the sauce is creamy. Add half of the Parmesan to the skillet and whisk until it is melted in. Add the remainder of the parmesan and whisk until melted in again.
5.
Add the fresh spinach and gently stir it into the sauce until it has wilted (3-5 minutes). Add the pasta and stir until it is well coated in the creamy tomato sauce. Serve warm.
