This is another quick dinner from my pantry and freezer. You can never go wrong with (whole wheat) pasta, but I was looking for a sauce that was just a little bit different. So I got out my food processor, and combined tomatoes and spinach. The sauce was a great combination of red and green, like Christmas in May! The consistency was quite thick so I used several spoonfuls on my bowl of pasta, but it was a really easy way to get in a serving of vegetables. If I had fresh basil on hand, I would have thrown in a handful for a more authentic Italian flavor. I was lucky that I had shredded Parmesan, which was perfect sprinkled on top. It was a quick, nutritious, and filling meal.

1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes
1 c. thawed chopped spinach, drained
Garlic powder, salt, and pepper

Combine ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Season to taste.
