Ingredients:

  • 1 package of 500 g pasta, I use Trofie from Barilla for this recipe
  • 1 kg of creamed spinach. The ones I cooked were frozen, and I warmed them up in the microwave.
  • 1 jar of basil pesto. The green Pesto is the best for this recipe.
  • 1 jar of sun-dried tomatoes. I always keep the oil which is inside to prepare my fried eggs, but this is another recipe.

Instructions :

  1. Heat the creamed spinach in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package until al dente.
  3. While the pasta is cooking, chop the sun-dried tomatoes into small pieces.
  4. Once the spinach is hot, add the jar of pesto and mix well.
  5. Drain the cooked pasta and add it to the saucepan with the spinach and pesto. Mix until the pasta is well coated with sauce.
  6. Sprinkle the pasta with pieces of sun-dried tomatoes to add a touch of sweetness and texture.

Extra tip: For an even more indulgent touch, add a few involtinis on the side. Their delicate flavor complements this already delicious dish perfectly.
