  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; stir in garlic and cook and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir spinach, cherry tomatoes, and red pepper flakes; cook and stir until spinach is wilted and cherry tomatoes start to burst, about 5 minutes.

  • Toss spinach mixture with cooked spaghetti; stir in lemon zest and juice. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Note:

Top off with chicken, shrimp, or cheese. When I grill chicken, I usually grill a lot. This is one of the ways I enjoy my leftovers.
