Recipe Ingredients for Pasta with clams, spinach and tomatoes

8 oz whole wheat pasta
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 large onion, red or white, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
6 1/2 oz Clams Baby-Whole
3/4 cup Diced Tomatoes, No Salt Added
1/2 tsp dried parsley
8 cups spinach

Recipe Directions for Pasta with clams, spinach and tomatoes

  1. Put a pot of water on high heat. When boiling, add the pasta and cook as the package directs.

  2. Meanwhile, put the olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Once it gets shimmery, add the onion and garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes.

  3. Add the clam juice ? but not the clams ? to the pan, along with the parsley. Bring it to a boil, turn the heat down slightly, and cook for 4-5 minutes.

  4. Add the tomatoes, spinach and clams. Cook, stirring frequently, for 2-3 minutes or until the spinach is mostly wilted.

  5. Strain the pasta and put it in a bowl or on a plate. Scoop the clam and vegetable mixture onto the pasta, and top it with a little grated cheese.
