Spinach & Tomato Penne

Community Recipe from


  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 clove(s) garlc, minced
  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon(s) butter
  • 1 pinch(s) crushed red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon(s) smoked paprika
  • 1 can(s) chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 pound(s) penne pasta, cooked
  • 4 cup(s) baby spinach
  • 2 cup(s) shredded mozzarella
  • 1/4 cup(s) breadcrumbs
  • pinch(s) salt & Pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400.

  2. In a medium skillet, heat the oil and butter over medium-high. Once the butter starts bubbling, add the onions. Saute until they start to soften, 5 minutes. Add the garlic, crushed red pepper and paprika. Saute another minute. Stir in the tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and simmer 5 to 10 minutes.

  3. Add in the cooked pasta and spinach. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.

  4. Pour mixture into a baking dish, sprinkle with cheese and breadcrumbs.

  5. Bake for 20 minutes. If the cheese isn’t melted and started to bubble and brown, flip it to the broiler for maybe a minute.

  6. Go ahead and serve yourself two helpings. I mean, why not?
