Ingredients
  

  • ½ box or bag penne pasta
  • 5 Roma tomatoes, chopped, large
  • 3 cups fresh spinach
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon Greek seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • 1 1 tablespoon to 1/2 cup crumbled bacon optional, to taste
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese

Instructions
 

  • Cook pasta in a large pan according to package directions.
  • In a large skillet or pasta pan after pasta is done, warm tomatoes, bacon, and onion, if desired.
  • Add spinach, seasoning, and pasta.
  • Drizzle with olive oil. Cook over medium heat for 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
  • Sprinkle with cheese and serve immediately.

Notes

Notes:
In place of the Greek seasoning, I have used a variety of mixtures. Any combination of spices you enjoy will work and add flavor. I have used Chinese Five Spice, McCormick Salad Supreme Seasoning, McCormick Montreal Chicken Seasoning.
When I didn’t have Feta Cheese I have substituted cheddar, Mexican mix, or none.
Comments:
Spinach will be slightly cooked, but nothing like what the stuff in the can looks and tastes like. We won’t touch the canned stuff , but enjoy this. By adding the onions and other vegetables I might have in the crisper drawer (zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumber, whatever) and cutting the pasta in half, this makes a great way to get lots of vegetables on the plate.
