I went to visit one of my best friends and see her new apartment in Queens a couple of weeks ago and she cooked this dish for dinner.  It was really simple and easy.  I cooked it last week and it was yummy.


  • Olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic chopped into small pieces
  • Jar of sundried tomatoes in oil (drain the oil before adding)
  • Bagged spinach (already washed and ready to eat)
  • Chicken broth
  • Any kind of pasta you want
  • Grated cheese


  1. Boil water in a pot and cook pasta as usual.
    While the pasta is cooking:
  2. In a pan, add a little olive oil (just enough to coat the bottom of the pan) turn the heat to medium and wait for it to get hot then add the chopped garlic.
  3. Lower the heat a smidge and move the garlic around so it doesn’t burn.
  4. Add the drained sundried tomatoes and a big handful of spinach.
  5. Add about 1/2 cup of chicken broth to make more of a sauce.
  6. When the pasta is done, drain it and add it to the pan if there is
    room.  Add a few spoonfuls of the starchy pasta water to the pan with the sauce before you drain the pasta.
  7. Add grated cheese, salt, and pepper to taste.
