spinach and feta pasta

Happy Monday friends!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I'm posting a little later than my normal morning time, because it has been a busy weekend all about my kids!  My husband was out of town for the weekend, so it was just me and my little ones.  We started Saturday with basketball pictures at one gym and then rushed over to another gym for a game with my son's team.  Later that day we celebrated a birthday with our sweet neighbors, and then from there the kids and I headed to Shiner to spend the rest of the weekend with my family.  We drove back last night and today we invited two of their friends over this morning to play and have lunch with us.  It's been lots of fun just spending time with them!
Here is a really easy, yummy recipe that I made last week!  It is very similar the chicken and spinach recipe that I shared here, but a lot quicker to put together.  Hope you enjoy as much as we did!
Spinach and Feta Pasta
8 ounces Penne pasta (I use whatever pasta I have on hand)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes
3 cups fresh baby spinach
1 onion, finely chopped
5 cloves minced garlic
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
salt and pepper, to taste
  • Cook pasta according to package directions
  • While cooking pasta, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat
  • Add onion, garlic and mushrooms and cook until tender
  • Add spinach and cook until wilted
  • Add tomatoes until heated through
  • Add drained pasta and feta
  • Add salt and pepper to taste
  • Warm all the way through and serve
