Fire-Roasted Tomato and Spinach Pasta


* 6 ounces linguine pasta
* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 3 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 (14.5 ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, with juice
* 1 (9 ounce) box frozen creamed spinach, thawed
* salt and pepper to taste


1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the linguine, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the fire-roasted tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Cook 1 minute before adding the creamed spinach. Cook and stir 5 minutes; season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir the drained linguine into the tomato sauce before serving.
