Cooking Spicy Spinach Pasta

How about cooking them a spicy spinach pasta? Read on to get the easy steps for this simple home-cooking recipe.

As long as you have olive oil and cherry tomatoes, you can be your own Pasta Queen (or King, for that matter)  Remember how we made the Pasta with Basil and Dill without a can of tomato sauce (or paste)?

In this post, I'll introduce you to another cherry tomato pasta recipe.

It's very easy, I promise.

Ingredients in cooking spicy spinach pasta:

Spinach goes well with pasta and cheeses. I believe I mentioned this in my Spinach and Cheese post. In which case, don't worry of using too much spinach for this pasta dish. 
- cherry tomatoes, washed and halved
- generous amounts of garlic, crushed and chopped
- dried papprika
- chicken (optional), cut in strips

3. Saute' the garlic and paprika.
4. When the garlic turns golden brown, toss in the cherry tomatoes.

You can also add chicken in this pasta dish for some proteins. For vegetarians however, this dish would be it.
