Creamy Spinach Pasta Recipe - TikTok @lifewithhopee

Here's the recipe for the pasta I made over on TikTok! Follow along here if you want, enjoy! :)


  • 1 box penne pasta

  • 1 yellow onion

  • 2 cloves garlic (I added 3!)

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil (or substitute oil)

  • 1 15oz. can diced tomatoes

  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano

  • 1/2 tsp dried basil

  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper (if you want an extra kick!)

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • Pepper to taste

  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste

  • 2 oz. cream cheese

  • 1/4 cup parmesan

  • 6 oz. fresh spinach (I just used about two handfuls)

Let's get cooking!

  • Boil water, add the pasta, cook for 7-10 minutes.

  • Dice up the onion and mince the garlic. Add it to a pan and cook over medium heat until it's soft and translucent.

  • Add in your diced tomatoes (with juices), oregano, basil, crushed red pepper, salt, and some pepper to the skillet. Mix it up and then add the tomato paste and a 1/2 cup of water. Stir it up!

  • Add in your cream cheese and Parmesan cheese. Stir those in until they melt and creat an absolutely delicioussss cheesy sauce.

  • When it looks about done, add your spinach in and stir until it wilts.

  • Then you're done! :) Enjoy!!!
