Recipe Ingredients for Spinach & Mushroom Pasta

8 ounces rotini pasta (I like to use whole wheat pasta)
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
4 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
5 ounces fresh baby spinach, cleaned & roughly chopped
2 tablespoons red wine
2 cups marinara sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper (to taste)
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, to taste (optional)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded

Recipe Directions for Spinach & Mushroom Pasta

  1. Preheat oven to 375F Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package.

  2. While water is boiling and pasta is cooking, heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.

  3. Add onion & saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, cook 30 seconds.

  4. Add mushrooms and cook until they release most of their liquid, about 5 minutes. Add spinach and wine and cook until spinach is wilted and most of the wine has evaporated, about 3 minutes.

  5. Stir in marinara sauce, salt, and both peppers and stir until heated through. Add Parmesan cheese and stir to combine.

  6. In a 2-quart casserole dish, cover the bottom with a thin layer of sauce. Add half the pasta, half the sauce, and half of the mozzarella. Repeat layers with remaining pasta , sauce, and mozzarella.

  7. Bake for 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
