Hi all 🙂
Last night I made a super fast meal for me and Jake, Creamy Spinach Pasta mmmmm!
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
Begin boiling water for pasta- when at a rolling boil add the pasta and cook till done.
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!
