  • Meanwhile, fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the rotini, and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.

  • Combine garlic, olive oil, and tomatoes in a large bowl. Stir in the heated creamed spinach. Serve over rotini.

This was simple but good perfect for an inexpensive weeknight dinner. Because we were pressed for time I just used a can of diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil instead of the fresh ingredients. I figure the whole meal cost me about 2.50. Read More
