Cream of Spinach Pasta

28 Mar

I have been sticking with tomato based pasta sauces for a while, but wanted to shake things up a bit with a cream based sauce. It is a great way to get yourself to eat some more spinach!

Cream of Spinach Pasta
Serves 4
Prep. Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
3/4 cup butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 onion, chopped
1 lb. frozen spinach
1 lb. pasta of your choice
1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan Cheese
1 cup milk
pepper

Directions:
1.  In a medium-sized skillet, melt half the butter and add the garlic and onion. Cook until golden but not browned. Add the spinach and partially cover the pan until the spinach has heated through.

2. Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to the package directions. Drain the pasta and return it to the pot. Toss it with the remaining butter, the spinach mixture, cheese, and cream until all are blended and heated through.
