Semi-accidental deliciousness: Easy Spinach Tomato Pasta

So the other day, I was looking for something to eat for lunch.  After much contemplation, I decided to go to Subway, but, in the end, I was too lazy to go through the "trouble" of watching someone make me a sandwich.

Instead, I decided to whip up some pasta. I was just going to have pasta with olive oil and basil. Ultimately, though, what I threw together ended up being beyond my wildest pasta dreams (not that I have a large repetoire of them or anything).

Here's the recipe: sautee half  of a red onion and a few minced cloves of garlic. Once they're somewhat translucent, add most of a frozen bag of spinach and a chopped up tomato. Once done to your liking, add in some more olive oil, some basil (I like the frozen cubes), and salt and pepper.  Spoon over whatever kind of pasta you have hanging around.

It's about impossible to screw up, and you can tweak the ratios of the ingredients super-easily to suit your own taste.

Hope you like it!


  1. Tee hee at pasta dreams...

    Sounds delicious! I may try this today!

  2. Hmm...I too have dreams of Pasta, but mine mostly involve me swimming in it or pulling it out of my hair after the Pizzmeister throws it at me.

    But, this does sound good, and I am thinking of trying it though I am afraid of the whole vegetarian thing. It's different therefore it must be evil right?

  3. Ps...

    How come I didn't know about this blog before now?

  4. I don't know, dude! I have been posting links to FB! :) Thanks for the comments. (Oh, and judging from the two commenters here, I can safely assume that raising toddlers makes one turn to blogging! The extent to which it has preserved all of our sanity(ies) has yet to be determined, however. *fingers crossed*)
