- Meanwhile, in a saucepan, heat oil, garlic, basil and hot crushed peppers over low heat 10 minutes to infuse flavor into the oil. Strain flavored oil and set aside. Set the garlic, basil and peppers aside as well.
- Return pasta to pot and place over medium heat. Add tomatoes, garlic and basil; toss until thoroughly heated. Season with salt and pepper. About two minutes before serving, add spinach. Mix well to coat. Spinach should be barely wilted.
