Spinach Ziti

Spinach Ziti


A simple, colorful pasta dish. Serve with a tossed salad and freshly grated parmesan cheese for a great meal.


  • 8 ounces ziti pasta
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Italian-style stewed tomatoes
  • ⅛ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 ounces fresh spinach, washed and chopped
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. Bring a large pot filled with salted water to a boil. Add ziti and cook until tender but still firm, about 12 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium sized non-reactive pan, combine tomatoes and hot pepper flakes. Warm over medium-low heat, breaking up tomatoes if necessary.
  3. Drain pasta and return to hot pan. Add spinach, cream cheese and nutmeg. Cook, stirring, over low heat until spinach wilts, 1-2 minutes. Pour tomato sauce over spinach ziti. Stir and toss gently to mix.
