Penne with wilted spinach & asiago

Submitted by: AMAZONWOMAN804

Introduction

A great italian-style pasta salad that's versatile--add some grilled chicken and pine nuts for a potluck, or add more vegetables and less cheese for an even lighter fare. Nothing smells better than fresh garlic in olive oil!

Directions

Cook pasta as directed. While pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium/high heat. Add the garlic. Add the spinach, stir. When the spinach has wilted enough that there is some room in the skillet, add the tomatoes. As the tomatoes begin to soften, add the artichokes and peppers, just to combine the flavors. When the spinach is fully wilted and the tomatoes are soft, the mixture is done. Combine with pasta. Add the cheeses and olives as desired.

Makes about 8 1c servings. Serves hot or cold.
