A note about serious food allergies

If you're ready for a fresh take on “spaghetti and red sauce,” this is the meal for you. Sun-dried tomatoes create a jammy, concentrated flavor base for this pesto in a pasta dish that's intense in the best possible way. It's accentuated by grape tomatoes, fresh spinach, and slivered almonds for a meal that's just as easy as sauce from a jar, and way more satisfying.

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Cook the Pasta

    Cook the Pasta

    Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 8-10 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process. Set aside in colander. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean. While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.

  • Step 2 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Coarsely chop tomatoes. Mince garlic. Halve baguette lengthwise. Stack two spinach leaves, roll up, and slice thinly across the length (reserve remaining whole leaves for pasta).

  • Step 3 - Make Roasted Tomatoes and Garlic Bread

    Make Roasted Tomatoes and Garlic Bread

    Combine tomatoes, half the garlic (reserve remaining for bread), 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper on half of prepared baking sheet. Spread into a single layer on their half. Place halved baguette on other half of baking sheet, cut side up. Drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil, remaining garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in hot oven until baguette is toasted and lightly browned and tomatoes have softened, 7-10 minutes. While baguette and tomatoes roast, finish pasta.

  • Step 4 - Finish the Pasta

    Finish the Pasta

    Return pot used to cook pasta to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add whole spinach leaves and ¼ tsp. salt to hot pot and cook until just wilted, 30 seconds. Stir in sun-dried tomato pesto until warmed through, 1 minute. Remove from burner and stir in pasta and roasted tomatoes.
