No-Stress Pasta Recipe

Makes: 7 servings

1 pound whole wheat pasta

4 garlic cloves, diced

2 tablespoons olive oil

4 tomatoes, chopped

1 cup Greek olives, pitted and sliced

2 tablespoons capers

2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano

1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

1 pound fresh spinach

Salt and pepper or crushed red pepper, to taste

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, but don't rinse. Saute garlic in olive oil. Add tomatoes, olives, capers, oregano, and basil; simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Toss in spinach at the last minute so that it wilts but doesn't cook through. Transfer pasta to a large bowl and toss with sauce. Season with salt and pepper or crushed red pepper. Serve.
