Easy pasta recipe spinach fettuccini with fresh tomatoes and basilUse only fresh tomatoes and basil since canned and dried don’t translate well. To amp up the protein, you can always add some feta cheese, sautéed shrimp or chicken. If you’re skipping pasta, just serve the sauce over fish or chicken. And, if you’re lucky enough to have left overs, it’s not as pretty, but tastes even better day 2.
