Pasta w/Spinach (D/P, TNT)
Source: Family favorite
Serves: 4

2 lbs. fresh spinach washed and stemmed
1 lb. fettuccini, linguini etc.
1/2 cup olive oil
2/3 cup pignoli (pine nuts)
4-5 cloves of garlic chopped (or 3 tsp. minced from a jar)
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese, optional

Wash spinach and cook in a large saucepan in only the water that clings to its leaves. Cook until wilted; drain, squeeze out excess water and chop finely. Set aside.

Start pasta and let cook while heating the oil over medium-high heat. Add pignoli and cook until golden. Stir in spinach and garlic, lower heat and cook 3 minutes more. Toss pasta with sauce, and cheese if using.

Poster's Notes:
This is greatly enjoyed in our house (and my husband is a veggiephobe).
