Zesty Pasta

Another one of those "I need to use stuff up" dinners.

1/2 can of Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles
a handful of frozen peas
some leftover shredded spinach
a few tablespoons of sour cream
Whatever GF pasta was in the pantry
parsley, basil, and pepper to taste

Heat the tomatoes, peas, spinach, parsley, basil and pepper on the stovetop on low while the noodles cook. When they're ready, top with the "sauce." Mix the sour cream into the tomato mixture just before serving.

It sounds kinda funky, but it was really very delicious. The sour cream brought everything together and cut down a little on the heat without being too heavy. It had a nice spicy kick- if you don't want a kick, then just use regular diced tomatoes.
