Linguine with Spinach & Cherry Tomatoes

This dish is super quick and perfect for busy days. From start to finish it can be done in under 30 minutes, you pretty much only boil water here and toss in the vegetables afterwards. You can add a meat option to this dish and it will still be a very healthy option. Grilled chicken would be my go to addition for this and perhaps some steamed asparagus chopped up in there if there wasn’t any spinach on hand. Very versatile and quick. 

Nice refreshing pasta dish for a hot day or, simply a busy one!

    Sometimes it’s simple dishes like this that are the most delicious and satisfying! I make something like this with tomatoes and basil from my garden. So good!
