YUM!! This was delicious!! I also used 2-3 garlic cloves, left the tomatoes whole but pricked. I also used whole-wheat penne and all freshly grated parmesan because the store didn't have asiago!? This was great - thank you!

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain pasta reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid.
  2. Meanwhile, warm olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the spinach and tomatoes and cook until the spinach wilts, about 2 more minutes.
  3. Add the cooked pasta and toss. Add the cheeses, salt, pepper, and the pasta cooking liquid and stir to combine.
  4. Transfer the pasta to a serving plate and serve.
