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!
