Ingredients

  • 8 ounces ziti pasta

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Italian-style stewed tomatoes

  • teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 4 ounces fresh spinach, washed and chopped

  • 2 ounces cream cheese

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot filled with salted water to a boil. Add ziti and cook until tender but still firm, about 12 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium sized non-reactive pan, combine tomatoes and hot pepper flakes. Warm over medium-low heat, breaking up tomatoes if necessary.

  3. Drain pasta and return to hot pan. Add spinach, cream cheese and nutmeg. Cook, stirring, over low heat until spinach wilts, 1-2 minutes. Pour tomato sauce over spinach ziti. Stir and toss gently to mix.
