Cream Spinach And Spaghetti
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2
 
Ingredients
  • Slug of olive oil
  • Sliver of butter
  • 2 garlic gloves thinly sliced
  • 1 packet of spinach - about 250gm
  • 1 tablespoon Mascarpone cheese
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons double cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cayenne pepper to taste
  • Enough Spaghetti for 2 people
  • Grated Parmesan cheese
Method
  1. Gently heat the olive oil and butter in a saucepan.
  2. Add the sliced garlic and gently cook for approx 2 minutes (make sure they don’t brown).
  3. Add the packet of spinach and cook for at least 5 minutes. The spinach will wilt down a lot – you may want to cut up the leaves with some scissors as they cook.
  4. Add plenty of salt, pepper and Cayenne pepper to taste (the spinach needs quite a lot of salt and pepper to make it taste but don’t use too much Cayenne pepper – just a sprinkling).
  5. Add the Mascarpone cheese and double cream and stir until all integrated.
  6. Cook the spaghetti according to the instructions.
  7. Mix the spinach sauce into the spaghetti and serve with grated Parmesan cheese.
