I don’t use the app TikTok. Well, that’s not completely accurate. If my adult kiddos send me something, I will look at or watch it but I don’t seek anything out on my own and don’t even have the app.
Recently my son Buck sent me a really good, healthy, and super easy-to-make recipe.
I have looked everywhere to find the video or link to the recipe again but I just can’t find it. My apologies to whoever first posted it. This is what the recipe looks like finished. You can opt to leave out the chicken. The original recipe did not call for chicken. This is a tomato, spinach, pasta recipe.
The original recipe didn’t have any real measurements and I don’t have any either. I wanted to have enough for Karl and I and then enough for a couple of meals of leftovers.
Start out with olive oil in a pan. Add tomatoes, onions, and garlic, and let that cook long enough for the tomatoes to pop and release their juices.
Add some Italian season and red pepper flakes to your liking. Salt and pepper to taste as well.
Cook it down until it looks like this.
Add a bag of fresh spinach. Cook it down to look like this.
Then add your noodles and chicken. I think any kind of noodles would be good. The original recipe called from some precooked noodles from Trader Joe’s. Our closest Trader Joes is about 2 hours away so some cooked spaghetti noodles worked great.
I really liked this. I wish I wouldn’t have added quite so many red pepper flakes…but it happens.
I am for sure making this next summer when I have lots of cherry tomatoes again. Here, my garden is gone and I’m back to buying tomatoes from the store and they are never quite as good.
If you give it a try, you’ll have to let me know. My son Buck and I both really liked it.
