Creamy Tomato And Spinach Pasta

This version of Creamy Tomato and Spinach alimentary paste uses simply barely of cheese and Parmesan to create an everyday pasta sauce immoderate wealthy and creamy. If you’re not into cheese, you may conjointly add a splash (1/4 cup or so) of [*fr1] and [*fr1] to attain an identical result. I used regular alimentary paste, however whole wheat would truly be pretty smart during this and would add some additional fiber and nutrients to create it a additional well rounded meal. i used to be lucky enough to induce spinach on sale for $0.99 per bag (score!), however if contemporary spinach is simply out of your worth vary, this is able to even be particular with sliced mushrooms. simply cook the mushrooms beside the onions and garlic within the starting. Or, hey, you may invariably do an obvious creamy pasta sauce. Nothin’ wrong with that!
