  • 1 pound whole wheat linguine
  • 1 cup pasta water, reserved
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup sundried tomatoes, chopped
  • 29 ounces diced tomatoes, (2 14.5 oz cans)
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste

  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions.  Reserve 1 cup of water before draining.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add garlic and sundried tomatoes.  Sauté a couple minutes, until fragrant.  Reduce heat to medium, and add diced tomatoes and tomato paste.  Stir until well combined.  Mix in sugar. 
  3. In a small bowl combine Greek yogurt and sour cream.  Whisk into tomato mixture.   Increase heat to medium-high and let simmer for 5-7 minutes, it will start to thicken slightly. 
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add the crushed red pepper flakes.  Mix in the baby spinach, it will take about a minute for the spinach to wilt.  Once the spinach is wilted toss with the cooked pasta.  Add water ¼ cup at a time, if necessary to get to your desired consistency.
