  • 1 package pasta, penne, bowtie, etc.
  • 2 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 lemon, for juice
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, (can use 1 tbsp. if preferred)
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoons red pepper flakes
  • fresh parmesan, for garnish


Step 1

Boil pasta according to directions. Just before pasta is finished, toast the pine nuts in a small pan (with oil, or without). Warm the olive oil in a large skillet, Add spinach & garlic and cook, tossing until just wilted. Add lemon.

Step 2

Combine spinach mixture to drained pasta and toss. Top with red pepper flakes and fresh Parmesan.

Step 3

(I like this extra lemon-y, so I might add more lemon to taste.) Also, delicious with lemon chicken but I kind of wanted to offer a vegetarian dish for Friday night. This is the kind of meal I make quite often for my kids.
