What’s for dinner this icy night??

Ok, I haven’t shared a recipe in a while and a friend requested this one! It’s SO tasty!!
Penne Rosa:

1 box (1 lb.) Penne pasta
1 T white wine ( I never use this because we don’t have it on hand!)
2 T olive oil
1/2 tsp. ground or crushed red pepper
1/4 cup heavy cream
10-20 spinach leaves (We use baby spinach from the produce section!)
1/2 cup marinara sauce
1 (14 oz.) can Italian -style diced tomatoes ( I bought the 28 oz can of italian tomatoes so it will double for 2 recipes!!)
Fresh grated Parmesan cheese– we use Feta!
Grilled chicken breast, sautéed shrimp or asparagus

Boil pasta according to package directions; set aside.
In a large skillet, heat wine, oil, marinara,mushrooms, tomatoes and red pepper over medium heat; stir for 4-5 minutes. Add pasta, mixing well. Add cream and continue stirring. Fold in spinach, stirring until wilted. Stir in cooked chicken, shrimp or asparagus. Serve with fresh Parmesan on top.
