Creamy Sundried Tomato Pasta - total time 30 minutes

One of the less fun things about cooking a lot at home is the mess that needs to be cleaned up afterward.  It doesn't matter how simple the meal is, my kitchen looks a wreck every night.  I don't know how I manage to be so messy and use so many bowls, pots, pans, spoons, and knives.  I seem to fill up the dish washer every night... and there is only two of us!

This meal actually had minimal clean up.  It is almost a one pot meal (you need one to boil pasta in, but that isn't hard to clean up after).  Everything else is just sauted, tossed, and served in one pot.  Soak the pot while you eat and you're pretty much done cleaning!

16 oz crushed tomatoes, chopped
.25 cup sundried tomatoes, chopped
1.5 cups spinach, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
5 garlic cloves, minced
16 oz. linguine
.5 cup sour cream
.25 parm, shredded
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp red pepper flakes
salt and pepper

1.  Melt butter in pan.  Add onion and garlic, saute for three minutes.  Add canned and dried tomatoes, bring to a simmer for eight minutes (add water if needed).
2.  While simmering, cook noodles according to package.
3.  Add sour cream, chopped spinach, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper to the tomatoes and simmer for an additional three minutes.  Add pasta and half of the parm, stir to combine.  Serve with a sprinkle of parm on top.
