ISO of a pasta dish

ok, I'm not too good with making things up sometimes. Depends on what it is. I want to use up some ingrediants hanging aound the house. I'm thinking of some kind of a hot pasta dish. Any ideas using the following or some of the following ingrediants:

spagetti, minced garlic, onion, small can (14.5oz) of diced tomatoes, percuitto, cherry tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, turkey bacon, romano cheese, a few fresh lemons.

You could make a nice quick tomato sauce with the diced tomato, onion and garlic. Add some olive oil, dry oregano or basil (or both) and simmer. You could also add some diced sundried tomato. Dice the prosciutto and add it in towards the end of the cooking time for the sauce and serve with the spaghetti.

Just remember, recipes can be altered to fit your ingredients. I would do what Andy said.

You could sauté your onion and garlic in some olive oil and just toss with everything else for a cold pasta salad.

That does sound good! Sometimes I julienne the prosciutto and fry it seperately, and top the dish with it. It adds a nice bit of crunch.

You could use the recipe, substituting frozen peas or broccoli for the spinach. Or just leave it out.
