Simple, Delicious Pasta

I've made this a few times now and find that with pasta, simple is best.

1 can diced tomatoes
1-2 cloves garlic -crushed
1/2 package Europe's Best Chef Spinach
1 box Catelli Smart Pasta - I use Rotini but any shape will do
2-3 tablespoons Cream cheese
cayenne pepper (to taste)
1 teaspoon sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to directions. Meanwhile, heat oil in pan on medium high and add in garlic.
Saute 1-2 minutes.
Add tomatoes, sugar, cayenne, salt and pepper and simmer for 5-7 minutes.
Add spinach and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
Add cream cheese and stir until melted.
Serve over pasta with Parmesan cheese if desired.

This recipe is simple and quick to prepare. It's great after a long day of work when you want something wholesome but don't want to spend a lot of time in preparation.
