This is such a quick easy dish. Sauteed in one pan and tossed all together, this dish gets a little kick from red pepper flakes. Toss some crumbled feta in, and this is a wonderful dish. I have also added in black olives many times for even another taste. I love to use the yellow pear tomatoes in this, but I know in many places they are difficult to find. Local farmers markets and Whole Foods or a similar grocery store often carries them.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 pint tomatoes (25-30 whole grape tomatoes)
  • 1 (7 ounce) bag Baby Spinach
  • 1 medium onion, cut in quarters and thin sliced
  • 12-1 cup crumbled feta (depends on your taste)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 12 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Onions and Garlic -- In a large saute pan, add the olive oil and bring to medium heat. Add in the garlic and onions and cook 2-3 minutes just soften them up.
  2. Tomatoes -- Add in the tomatoes and cook until they become soft and they are just starting to pop. Don't let them get too over done.
  3. Spinach -- Add in the spinach and stir until slightly wilted (just a minute or two), then add in the balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
  4. Serve -- Just add to your serving bowl and add the feta cheese just to combine and enjoy!
