Ingredients

  • ¾ cup Hidden Valley® Greek Yogurt Creamy Caesar
  • ½ lb. penne pasta (8 oz.)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 15 oz. can of diced fire-roasted tomatoes
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes, or to your taste
  • salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated fine
  • extra Parmesan for sprinkling atop finished pasta when serving
  • 5 oz. fresh baby spinach

Directions

  1. 1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender (according to package directions). Drain the pasta in a colander.
  2. 2. While waiting for the pasta to cook, dice the onion and mince the garlic. Cook both in a large skillet with the olive oil over medium-low heat until softened and transparent, about 5 minutes. Add the diced tomatoes with juices, dressing, oregano, red pepper flakes, salt and some freshly cracked pepper to the skillet. Stir to combine.
  3. 3. Add the Parmesan to the skillet and whisk until it is melted.
  4. 4. Add the fresh spinach and gently stir it into the sauce until it has wilted (3–5 minutes). Add the pasta and stir until it is well-coated.
  5. 5. Taste and adjust the salt and pepper as needed. Serve warm garnished with grated Parmesan.

Penne with Greek Yogurt Caesar Sauce is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pasta with a Simple Tasty twist Was looking for a hearty dinner recipe, but different from the standard ones I do regularly. With a simple tomato base, made creamy by the addition of the Greek yogurt ranch, it was a warm and comforting dinner, with a sneak in of some veggies in a winning pasta dish. I would recommend just adding the Parmesan to the top at the end, as it did not blend in well in the sauce but added a great flavor on top.
