Gary loves loves loves Italian food.  He would eat pasta or pizza every day if given the opportunity.  We (I) got tired of the same old spaghetti so I spiced it up and snuck in a little spinach for good measure. He loved it!!!  "This recipe is a keeper" he said and then asked if we could have it at least once a week, LOL!

What you'll need

16 oz of your favorite pasta, cooked
1 lb of lean ground beef
1 jar of Arrabbiata pasta sauce
1/2 of an onion, diced
1 brick of cream cheese
red pepper flakes
canola or olive oil

First dice up the onion and saute for a minute or two.  Then add in the ground beef and brown. Once it's done be sure to drain off grease.

Next add in the pasta sauce and cream cheese.  Keep sauce over medium heat stirring occasionally until the cheese is melted.  Taste.  Add in a small amount of red peppers until you get the heat you like.

Now for the sneaky part, SSHHHH!  Add in a few handfuls of spinach and let it wilt down into the sauce. Oh man it's really coming together now!

Throw in your cooked pasta and toss.

Voila, you're done!  (Be prepared to make this often :-) )
