There's no need to rush to the store to put this colorful one-dish meal on the table.


  • 3/4 cup thinly sliced sweet red pepper
  • 1/4 cup bottled reduced-fat Italian salad dressing, divided
  • 4-1/2 cups chopped fresh spinach (about 3 to 4 oz.)
  • 6 ounces bow-tie OR spiral pasta, cooked and drained
  • 3 to 6 eggs
  • 3 to 6 tablespoons skim milk
  • Parmesan cheese, optional


  1. In a 10-inch omelet pan or skillet, stir together peppers and 2 tablespoons dressing. Cover. Cook over medium heat until peppers are crisp-tender, about 1 to 3 minutes. Add spinach. Cover. Cook until spinach is wilted, about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Stir in pasta and remaining dressing.
  2. In a small bowl, beat together eggs and milk until blended. Pour into skillet. As eggs begin to set, gently turn eggs, vegetables and pasta with a pancake turner or spatula, forming large, soft curds. Cook until eggs are thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Do not stir constantly. Sprinkle with cheese, if desired.
