My tomato and spinach pasta that I am sharing today was one of those creation recipes.  I wanted pasta and wanted to put some spinach in it, along with turkey… and this delicious recipe is what came out of it.  If you aren’t a big spinach fan, leave it out or only put half in.  Even Mo liked it!  Make sure you check out the other recipes linked up for Tickle My Tastebuds!
