Not only this pasta recipe is quick and easy but it is extremely delicious. The Progresso recipe starter will allow you to have this recipe ready in no time. The minute you boil the pasta this fire roasted tomato pasta will be ready to go. It takes no more than 15-20 minutes to put together.

If you like you can also freeze leftovers and have later on. Pasta freezes rather well so for the days that you are extra busy this will be a healthy meal to defrost and have in no time.

I am not one to use prepared sauces but this sauce was really good. My kids really enjoyed it. I am glad I actually doubled the batch because pasta is always a great option for my kids. They never turn down pasta meals.

This fired roasted tomato pasta was great and adding the cherry tomatoes and spinach was a great call. I always like extra veggies and fresh produce in my pasta. The Parmesan cheese and parsley gives it the extra touch. You can use any other cheese of your choice, Pecorino Romano cheese is also a great option.

This fire roasted tomato pasta is great. Use whatever veggie staples you have in your fridge. This recipe is very versatile and the sauce can complement any type of produce. If you like some extra protein add some cooked chicken chunks to the skillet and mix in with the veggies. I am sure your family will love it!

Enjoy!
