Fresh Tomato Pasta


  • 2 cups grape tomatoes sliced in half
  • 1 8oz box pasta (I like Banza)
  • juice from half a lemon
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped thyme
  • 10 large basil leaves chopped
  • 12 cups fresh spinach


  1. Cook pasta according to box directions then drain and rinse.
  2. In a nonstick pan (I use the Always pan), turn to medium heat. Add all ingredients except for the basil and spinach.
  3. Let the sauce simmer on medium-low heat for about 10 minutes or until the tomatoes have softened.
  4. Once tomatoes are soft, add in spinach and stir. Let sauce continue to simmer until spinach has wilted (approx. 1-2 minutes).
  5. After spinach is wilted, add in pasta and stir to coat the sauce.
  6. Top with fresh basil and enjoy!


*Do not heat sauce higher than medium temperature because the garlic will burn.
