Sub Category   None
Servings   4

1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion
2 cloves garlic
15oz can diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp dried oregana
1/2 tsp dried basil
pepper to taste
2 tbsp tomato paste
2 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan
1/2lb penne pasta
1/2 of a 9oz. bag of fresh spinach

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender. Drain the pasta in a colander.
While waiting for the pasta to cook, dice the onion and mince the garlic. Cook both in a large skillet with the olive oil over medium-low heat until softened and transparent (5 minutes).

Turn the heat down to low. Cut the cream cheese into a few pieces and then add them to the skilled with the tomato sauce. Use a whisk to stir the sauce until the cream cheese has fully melted in and the sauce is creamy. Add half of the Parmesan to the skillet and whisk until it is melted in. Add the remainder of the Parmesan and whisk until melted in again. Add the fresh spinach and gently stir it into the sauce until it has wilted (3-5 minutes). Add the pasta stir until it is well coated in the creamy tomato sauce. Taste and adjust the salt and pepper as needed. Serve warm.
