Make this after a busy day because it can be done in a jiffy. The spinach gives it a hit of colour. Sprinkle it with parmesan, if you like.

I really liked it, but my husband is more of a meat and potato type, so he wasn't impressed. I served it with broccoli and salad to round out the meal and made it with whole wheat pasta. I also omitted the olive oil and just used canola oil spray on my pan. A third of the recipe with pasta came in under 300 calories! Yummy - thanks for the recipe!

My husband and I found this to be kind of bland and in need of some help. Also, jars of roasted red peppers are expensive. It has a beautiful presentation though with the lovely red tomatoes and green spinach. It didn't take long to make but it gets lots of dishes dirty.

Very good dish! I used angel hair pasta and used my fresh oregano and cherry tomatoes from the garden (seem to be the only things growing out there)! This was really a nice change and like you said, not a lot of fuss to make. Thanks for posting!
