PASTA and SPINACH, I Love You!
I love pasta. I love sauce on my pasta. And I love spinach in my pasta sauce. Spinach is so versatile. Who knew.
This is a great change from the usual red tomato sauce. A creamy blend of garlic, spinach and ricotta, that is easy to make, tasty and filling!
This dish is perfect for a quick evening meal. I think it may have taken me 10-15 minutes to make this. Perfect for my growling tummy.
I used the Southwestern Blend of Pappardelle’s pasta. It included the flavors of blue corn, red southwestern chile, green jalapeno and yellow maize. I got this at our local farmers marker this past fall. Plus some fresh spinach, parsley, ricotta and minced garlic.
I sautéed the spinach in a drizzle of olive oil stove top.
And then I added in the minced garlic, ricotta and some skim milk to make a sauce for my steaming hot pasta~
Add the sauce to the pasta and VOILA!
P+S, I Love You Pasta Sauce
2 cups fresh spinach
1 cup ricotta cheese (I used low-fat)
1 tsp. Olive Oil
2 tsp. minced garlic (I used dried minced garlic)
2 Tbsp. milk
Garlic salt and black pepper, optional
Sautee spinach stove top in the olive oil over medium heat until slightly wilted. Add in the garlic, ricotta and milk. Stir and heat thoroughly. Serve over the pasta shape of your choice. You made add in onion salt and pepper to the sauce if you desire.
Then you top it with loads of parmesan cheese and a side of garlic bread~
G, double O, D – GOOD!!!
This was a delicious dinner in The Scene From Me household. Two thumbs up! Well 4, really.
Do you like flavored pasta like I had here?
I’ve heard there is chocolate pasta. Has anyone ever tried that?
