Today is National Fresh Spinach Day. Spinach is my daughter’s favorite vegetable. Around my house we eat it in salads, quiche, twice baked potatoes and in pasta limone.
1 lbs. spaghetti noodles
Cook spaghetti noodles in salted water until al dente. Reserve 2 cups of pasta water before draining.
In a separate skillet, heat oil till shimmering. Add garlic and onions and cook till softened (about 2 minutes). Whisk in 1 cup of pasta water and cream, bring to a simmer. Add remaining ingredients. Cook until spinach is wilted.
Add reserved pasta water if necessary.
OPTIONAL: Top with additional cheese and fresh basil if desired. We eat this as a meal without meat (with a side of fresh fruit), but grilled chicken is a great addition.
