Penne Rosa

We only eat meet two or three nights a week so we end up eating pasta at least once or twice we week. I'm always looking for new pasta meals that will make my family happy and this one did it! This recipe is slightly adapted from The Stay at Home Chef.

1lb penne pasta
2 tbsp olive oil
8oz sliced mushrooms
2 cups chopped spinach
4 roma tomatoes (diced)
2 cloves minced garlic
1 3/4 cups marinara sauce
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2/3 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste 

Boil the pasta according to directions. While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Stir in the sliced mushrooms and cook until the are softened. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the marinara sauce and red pepper flakes then bring to a simmer. Stir in the spinach and tomato and let cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the heavy cream and bring back to a simmer then turn down heat. Add the pasta and mix well.
