4 tomatoes, chopped
1 cup Greek olives, pitted and sliced
2 tablespoons capers
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

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.
