I love a good baked pasta recipe. I mean what's not to like about pasta and tomatoes covered in melted cheese. This simple recipe uses ingredients you probably already have at home - high fiber pasta, canned diced tomatoes, spinach, and mozzarella cheese - and comes together relatively quickly. It also can be assembled ahead of time and then just baked on that night. If you don't love diced tomatoes, you can substitute in your favorite sauce or crushed tomatoes.
One quick note, if you look closely at the picture, you may notice some sausage. I added it to half of the dish because I knew I was feeding a bunch of hungry boys. You could add ground beef, ground turkey, lean sausage, or white beans for added protein. Using a pound of 99% lean ground turkey would add 125 calories (1 SmartPoints) per serving, ground beef would add 150 calories (3 SmartPoints), and lean turkey or chicken sausage would add 150-200 calories (3-5 SmartPoints).
