2 hamburger patties (2/3 lbs in total)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
1 (or more) full handful of spinach
spices (oregano, parsley, etc.)
minced garlic
Extras: Mushrooms (canned or fresh), onions or peppers (onions cooked to translucent before beef), or added some crushed red pepper to added some hotness!!

Cook hamburger & crumble until cooked through. Drain off excess fat.
Add in can of diced tomatoes(added in the water/juice too), tomato paste, spices & garlic. Mix thoroughly. Allow to cook for about 5 minutes.
Add in spinach then cover pan to allow to wilt, about 5 minutes.

Serve over pasta, or spaghetti squash, or my new favorite QUINOA!
