This Spaghetti with Spinach Sauce recipe is a super simple, quick, healthy and really flavorful.
If you’re after some hearty comfort food on a budget then this vegetarian pasta is just the thing.
You can add leftover chicken or frozen cooked shrimp for the meat eaters in the family as well. I’ve had readers report back that they’ve used anything from salmon to pistachios as variations. Don’t be afraid to add your own personal touch to this easily adapted recipe.
The lovely, leafy spinach in this recipe makes for a flavorsome and intriguing bright green pasta that even kids will want to dive into!
Case in point:
My son’s friend came over today for a play date and as soon as he got here he asked me what we were having for dinner. I told him what I had planned and he said, ‘Can we please have that green spaghetti you make? That’s well good; I love it!’
How could I say no to that?
Luckily, it’s so easy to make, it was really no trouble at all and he was really happy!
This recipe is the perfect example of how you can hide veggies in food to trick the kids into eating them, because other wise, he wouldn’t touch a bowl full of spinach!
I use fresh spinach, but I’m sure frozen would work just as well. I also use a food processor, but a blender would also work if you add the pasta water in before blending.
