  • 14.5 ounce can Muir Glen diced tomatoes with Italian Herbs (see hints below)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups whole grain or brown rice penne pasta
  • 5 ounces fresh baby spinach leaves


Place the tomatoes and water in a large pot and bring to a boil. Stir in the pasta, cover and cook over medium-low heat until pasta is tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the spinach, cover and cook for about 2 minutes until softened.

Hint: Muir Glen Organic tomatoes come in a variety of other flavors so you may also want to try this recipe with some of the other alternatives, such as Fire Roasted diced tomatoes with Green Chilies.
