Spinach Tomato Macaroni

Happy Friday!  I like to call this the 10 minute pasta with a twist.  We all need these types of meals sometimes – especially this week for me.  When you are in a rush as it sometimes happens… eating healthy is tough.  To help out in the process of preparing healthy meals, you need to have some quick meal ideas that can ease the stress, and sometimes dread, of cooking dinner.

I created this meal out of scraps (as I call them) in the fridge.  The scraps used for this meal were left over spinach and feta cheese.  I always like to have some homemade tomato sauce in the freezer on hand as a quick and easy sauce in a pinch.

Next time you need a meal in 10 minutes give this a try.


  • Macaroni
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Spinach
  • Feta Cheese


  1. Cook pasta according to directions.
  2. Warm sauce in microwave until heated.
  3. Drain pasta, once cooked.
  4. Toss pasta with sauce.
  5. Add generous portion of uncooked spinach to bowl.
  6. Cover with macaroni.
  7. Top with cheese.
  8. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: To freeze tomato sauce and or stocks – try saving them in ice cubes trays or ice cube bags for simple access and great if you only want to thaw out a little bit at a time.

That is it!  A zesty meal with a decent balance of Nutrition in 10 minutes.  Have a great weekend and I will see you on Monday.

Take care
