Spinach-Pasta Toss

1 can(14-1/2 oz.) Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
2 cups multi-grain penne pasta, uncooked
1 cup water
1 pkg. (9 0z.) baby spinach leaves (more or less for your liking)
1 cup Shredded mozzarella cheese

Bring tomatoes, pasta and water to boil in large saucepan; stir. Cover; simmer on medium-low heat 10 minutes. Uncover; simmer 1 min, or just until pasta is tender.

Add half the spinach; simmer, covered 2 minutes or until wilted. Stir. Repeat with remaining spinach.

Serve topped with cheese.

2.5 POINTS per 1 cup serving.

This recipe is really easy and yummy. I always use less than the 9 oz. of spinach called for. Also, I've used different varieties of canned tomatoes (lime with cilantro) and that can really change the flavor of the dish. This is a good meatless recipe and my family loves it! You could easily add meat if you want to 'beef' it up...of course that would change the POINTS value.
