ONE-PAN PASTA
From the recipe box of travel writer Carole Terwilliger Meyers.
Follow her Travels With Carole blog.

I love that this recipe uses only one pan.  Using whole-grain pasta makes it particularly healthy, though you can of course substitute in regular pasta.  And though I prefer this meatless version, you can add in about 1/2-pound of ground beef after the onion is sautéed and cook for about 5 minutes.


1 Tbl. olive oil
1 onion, diced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced (optional)
          Saute about 3 minutes in medium frying pan. 

14.5 oz. can/1½ cups crushed tomatoes
1¼ cup chicken stock
8 ounces uncooked whole-grain penne pasta
pepper to taste
          Add and bring to boil.  Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 12 minutes or until pasta is done. 

5 oz./1 cup packed fresh baby spinach
          Add and stir to mix.

4 oz./1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
          Sprinkle over top.  Place pan under broiler for 2 minutes, or until cheese melts and begins to brown. 

Serves 4.
