Penne Bosciaola

The fresh vegetables in this pasta are to die for.  Baby spinach, sauteed mushrooms and onions, and TONS of little grape tomatoes.  I love that this dish is bursting with so much flavor, yet it takes such a short time to make it!

Classes start tomorrow so I needed something that I could have in the fridge and reheat quickly.  I was going through my recipe box and came across this old friend.  I couldn’t remember the last time I made it.. and then I couldn’t imagine why I hadn’t made it recently!  So to start of the semester right, I will be dining on delicious Penne Bosciaola for the week!
