Tired of basic pasta? This creamy tomato and spinach version will help!
Hey yall! Quick question – what do you do for dinner when you are pressed for time? Even though I work from home there are still days that I just can’t figure out what to make. I’ll look in my fridge a million times and think “I wish dinner would appear.. right HERE.” But it doesn’t and the search continues.
Anyone else have that dilemma?
Now with being pregnant, having a love/hate relationship with some foods AND being beyond tired, it has only gotten worse. I feel like every night is a rush to get dinner on the table.
That’s pretty much why I have been sharing a bunch of pasta recipes lately. (See taco pasta salad, one pan broccoli Alfredo pasta, French onion dip pasta for a few recent examples.) Pasta is my go to “need to get dinner on the table ASAP” meal. I can whip up a whole meal (sometimes in one pan!) in under 30 minutes. Yesss! Mama needs more of that in her life.
On top of that – I’m a total pasta-a-holic. I love getting the super fun shaped pastas that you don’t see everyday. I used a trottole shaped pasta for this recipe that I found at Target!
One onion, a tub of ricotta and a bag of spinach later and I was ready to whip up this creamy pasta at home. (I bought a few other things but they weren’t necessities for the recipe. Because side note, who can leave Target without more then they expected to buy?! NO ONE. That’s who.)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 large onion, diced
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 cups of fresh spinach, rinsed and dried
