  4. Stir in the water, broth, sun-dried tomatoes, and 1/2 teaspoon salt, then add in the pasta.
  5. Increase heat to high and cook at a vigorous simmer, stirring often, until the pasta is tender and the liquid has thickened, about 15-18 minutes.
  6. Stir in the spinach, a handful at a time, and cook until wilted.
  7. Off the heat, stir in the Parmesan cheese and pine nuts.
  8. Season to taste with salt and pepper; serve.
