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!

  1. Thank you so much for featuring my Red and White Lasagna Rolls Julia! Thanks for the weekly party and foodie fun~ Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  2. You are very welcome! I had to refrain from putting “Roll Tide” or my Buckeye-loving husband would have killed me. 🙂

  3. I was surprised how good it was… I have never used spinach in just regular pasta… just alfredo or lasagna.

  4. Hello cute lady! I love stopping by and partying with you. Thank you for hosting. Please come and party with us at our party. We would really appreciate it. Happy Tuesday! Lou Lou Girls
