Ingredients

  • 1 8 oz pack of pasta I used gluten free pasta from Trader Joe's
  • 2 cups spinach roughly chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes roughly chopped
  • 1/2 heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup pasta water
  • 1/2 cup Parmegiano Reggianno cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta as per the package instructions. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water. Drain the pasta and set aside. 
  • Melt butter in a skillet on medium high. Add garlic and let is saute until fragrant. 
  • Add the sub dried tomatoes and let them saute and soften for 1-2 minutes. Season with Italian herbs, crushed red pepper, salt and black pepper. 
  • Add the heavy cream, milk, pasta water and cheese to this the skillet. Stir until all the cheese has melted and it forms a smooth, bubbly sauce. The sauce should also start thickening up at this point. 
  • Stir in the cooked pasta and spinach. The spinach will start wilting down almost immediately. 
  • Adjust the consistency of the sauce by adding milk if its too thick or more cheese it is too thin. 
  • Stir well and serve warm.
