Ingredients

  • 6 ounces, weight Pasta (any Kind)
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 cup Raw Spinach
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced

Preparation

Cook the pasta according to package directions.

Add the olive oil to a small skillet over medium heat, and cook the spinach, garlic, and jalapeño until the spinach is wilted, about 3 minutes.

I really loved this creamy dish. Was concerned the jalepenos would overpower, but they were mild and added just a touch of heat. My husband thought it was too tangy, but I thought it was fantastic.
