Creamy Spinach Pasta

Hi all 🙂

Last night I made a super fast meal for me and Jake, Creamy Spinach Pasta mmmmm!

Ingredients: 

1 Tablespoon of Olive oil

1 clove of garlic

1/2 pound of fresh spinach or about 1 1/4 cups frozen spinach

1 regular sized package of flavored cream cheese of your choosing(I used spinach and artichoke- but chive and onion, or garden veggie, or sun dried basil tomato, all would be good too!)

1/2 pound of pasta

Directions:

Begin boiling water for pasta- when at a rolling boil add the pasta and cook till done.

Meanwhile…..

Heat the olive oil in a medium sized skillet over medium-high, add minced garlic clove and sauté until softened.

Thaw and drain spinach(if using frozen) or add the fresh spinach directly to the pan- either way add the spinach to the pan at this point. If fresh-stir until the spinach is wilted (1-2 minutes).

Add cream cheese and salt and pepper to taste and stir until mixed well.

Here is what mine looked like at this stage:

Add pasta and combine. Serve with parmesan cheese sprinkled over top if desired.

So simple and delicious!

Hope you enjoy! 🙂 Also: enjoy this beautiful week- not sure what the weather is like wherever you are, but it is beautiful like me and I plan to get out and enjoy it. Hope you do the same!

xoxo
