DIRECTIONS
  1. Cook pasta in salted water according to package directions. Drain pasta and set aside.
  2. Add oil to a skillet and heat it over a medium heat. Add tomatoes and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes.  
  3. Add garlic and olives and sauté for one more minute.
  4. Add tomato sauce and spinach and keep stirring for 2 to 3 minutes until heated through. Add chili flakes and stir well.
  5. Add the cheeses and stir until they’re melted. Add salt and pepper only if needed as the olives are salty anyway.
