Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound orecchiette pasta cooked according to package directions
  • 1 24-ounce jar marinara sauce, or the same amount of homemade
  • 2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained and chopped
  • ¼ cup kalamata olives sliced
  • 1 8-ounce bag baby spinach
  • 4 ounces feta cheese crumbled
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes optional
  • 2 tablespoons capers rinsed and drained (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped parsley for garnish (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Heat the marinara sauce in a large skillet. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, olives, and capers, if using; simmer for a couple of minutes, then add the cooked orecchiette along with the spinach. Simmer until the pasta is heated through and the spinach has just wilted about 3 - 4 minutes. Add red pepper flakes, taste and adjust seasonings (remember, the feta cheese will add saltiness to the dish). Place in large heated bowls; top with crumbled feta. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.
