Spinach-Pasta Toss

I found this recipe in the Kraft magazine I get in the mail.  I made it tonight and it was DELISH!  It's so easy, quick and very healthy.  I'll be making this often for a quick meal. (BTW it taste better than the picture looks) Here's what you need:

1 can (14 1/2 oz) Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
2 cups multi-grain penne pasta, uncooked
1 cup water
1 pkg (9 oz) baby spinach leaves
1 cup Kraft 2% Milk Shredded Italian Three Cheese Blend (I couldn't find this in the store so I just bought Kraft Three Cheese blend)
You can also add chicken if you want but it's just as tasty without.

Bring tomatoes, pasta and water to boil in large saucepan; stir.  Cover; simmer on medium-low heat 10 min.  Uncover; simmer 1 min. or just until pasta is tender.

Add half the spinach; simmer, covered, 2 min. or until wilted.  Stir.  Repeat with remaining spinach.  It looks like there is way more spinach that pasta and that you won't have room to put in all the spinach but it really cooks down.  Add it little at a time)

Serve topped with cheese ( I also added Parmesan cheese)
