Instructions:

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; preheat oven to 375 if baking.
  2. In a blender or food processor, combine all ingredients except the pasta.
  3. When pasta is almost tender, fully drain (do not rinse). Mix pasta with sauce and pour into a sauce pan OR lightly oiled 8 x 12 baking dish.  Stir in the peas, spinach, and cherry tomatoes.
  4. If baking, cover with foil and bake 17-18 minutes. If cooking on the stovetop, cook until sauce thickens and is bubbly.  Do not overbake the sauce or it will get too thick.
  5. Makes one 9 x 12 pan.
