I invented this recipe at the end of the week when groceries were running low-just a few ingredients make up this easy pasta dish. This can be a healthier yet still flavorful meal by using low-fat sour cream and whole wheat pasta.

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until tender. Drain.
  2. While you wait for the pasta, combine the tomatoes and spinach in a saucepan over medium heat. When the spinach begins to wilt, stir in the sour cream and pesto. Toss sauce with drained pasta and serve immediately.

This was really good. I added 3 cloves of garlic a few pinches of Oregano and some salt and peppper. After I added the sauce to the noodles. I sprinkled in some parmesan cheese and pine nuts.

Really, really good! I put in as much spinach as I could, as others have suggested and it was awesome. We also added in more pesto- try 1 1/2 or 2 tablespoons. Really easy and really fast. Thanks!

This was quick and tasty. I make something similar and never thought to add sour cream to it. I made it for a family dinner, and there were no loeftovers.
