  1. In a small saucepan, bring broth to a boil. Reduce heat to low.
  2. Spray a deep medium-size saucepan with nonstick cooking spray. Place the saucepan over medium-high heat and add olive oil. When oil is hot, add onions, garlic, and bell pepper. Sauté 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Add uncooked pasta, stirring 2 to 3 minutes to lightly brown.
  4. Add 1/2 cup hot broth. Stir continually until broth is absorbed. Add the next 1/2 cup broth. Continue adding broth by 1/2 cup for 10 to 15 minutes or until pasta is tender.
  5. Add salt-free seasoning, salt, cream cheese, 1/4 cup walnuts, and spinach leaves. Stir 2 to 3 minutes until cream cheese is melted and spinach is wilted.
  6. Top each serving with remaining walnuts.
  7. Makes 4 servings.
