  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
