Stir in the tomatoes and juice; place a lid on the pan to simmer, about 10 minutes.

While tomatoes are simmering, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, and cook pasta, per package instructions.

About 5 minutes before the pasta is to be done, add the spinach to the tomato sauce; stir to incorporate and allow it to wilt.
