A reciepe sharing community for those of us who ar
i've recently gone vegetarian, so if you have a great recipe, please post it. |
here's a pasta and spinach recipe i have...
20 ounces tortellini or ravioli - either works. i use barilla tortellinis
4 cloves garlic
about 6 teaspoons olive oil or more
1/4 cup pepper
1/2 cup water
16 ounces frozen spinach
here's what you do. get either tortellini or ravioli, found in the pasta aisle, or you can also use the pasta sold near the cheeses or any other kind you like. the recipe also calls for frozen spinach, but i used fresh spinach this last time, with fresh mushrooms and broccoli and it worked well. boil the pasta according to the package directions. while your pasta is boiling, chop or press 4 cloves of garlic. pour enough olive oil in your skillet to coat the bottom and sautee the garlic for about 30 seconds on high heat. then put your vegetables, salt and pepper in the skillet with the garlic and olive oil. if you're using frozen spinach, the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of water as well. you sautee it all together until the spinach wilts. the recipe calls for medium heat, but i usually do it a little higher. i guess do it according to your stove's quirks. if you're using the frozen spinach, it should be warm and not clumped.
once the vegetables are cooked, spoon them into bowls. when the pasta is boiled, drain it and spoon portions
of that onto the vegetables. pour a teaspoon of olive oil onto the pasta and serve.
it should serve 4.
