You know when a meal is so good that you're sad when it's gone? That is what happened with this Spinach, Tomato and Pine Nut Pasta! I made a batch of it for Troy and I for lunch one Saturday afternoon and we ate it all in one sitting. I kept thinking about it all day what a great meal it was. So tasty, filling and best of all: quick! The whole meal is ready in just 15 minutes.

The next night, we were not sure what to make for dinner so I made another batch of this delicious pasta. Trust me when I say this, we are not creatures of habit with food. I rarely make the same dish twice (aside from things like tacos and other basics) so to make this two nights in a row means that we really loved it.

For the pasta, I used a lentil pasta but feel free to use whole-wheat pasta or another bean-based pasta if you prefer. I think that this would also be great with rice or quinoa as well. I kept it simple and used canned fire-roasted tomatoes. I used a bunch of chopped baby spinach leaves. I recommend using a high-quality shredded Parmesan cheese for maximum flavor. And don't forget the pine nuts! Those add a ton of flavor.
