Spinach Pasta

Ever in search of yummy ways to cook green vegetables a friend suggested this. Her version included parmesan cheese, my toddler food tester prefers tasty cheese. It is easy enough to add the cheese after plating the food, so everyone is happy. Cream can be substituted for ricotta for a richer meal.

1 washed bunch of spinach
1/2 cup ricotta
grated tasty cheese to taste
grated parmesan cheese to taste
2 cups of spiral pasta

Cook pasta in a saucepan of boiling water.

Wash and chop spinach, cook on a low heat in a covered saucepan until thoroughly wilted. (The water from washing is usually enough for this to cook in, add a little more water if you think it is too dry). Puree, add ricotta and stir into pasta. Add grated tasty cheese or parmesan. This is enough for 2 adults and 1 small person.

hmmm, better work on that food photography...
