Healthy Budget Pasta

With the amount of restaurants in this city, we could easily eat out at a new restaurant every night. But that would get crazy expensive. So on weeknights, we try to eat at home. Here's one of our recent budget pasta loves (because cooking pasta is easy and it's far easier to eat vegetables with pasta than alone). Ingredients: Ripe plum tomatoes, one bunch of fresh basil, one box pasta, four tbsp extra virgin olive oil, one cup chopped spinach, salt and pepper to taste. Top it off with shaved parmesan. Simple and delicious. Total cook time: 30 minutes.
