Sweet Tomato, Basil and Spinach Ziti


Directions

This recipe was inspired by something Rachel Ray prepared on her show. Instead of spinach, she used arugula and instead of mushrooms, she used shrimp. This is a light alternative. Hope you enjoy!
  1. Place tomatoes in a roasting pan and sprinkle with a generous amount of olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Place into a 400 degree F oven for 15 minutes until tomatoes are wrinkled and tender. Remove from oven and mash the tomatoes. Set aside.
  2. Boil pasta in salted water until al dente.
  3. In a pan, saute 1/2 the scallions and the mushrooms in oil on high heat. When mushrooms are tender, lower heat and add the cooked pasta.
  4. Stir in basil, spinach, remaining scallions and tomatoes. Add a bit of water. Cover pan and cook until greens are wilted.
  5. Remove pan from heat and sprinkle cheese.
  6. Serve hot.
