Since I got my KitchenAid pasta attachments, I’ve been making pasta like a fiend. A couple of weeks ago, I shared with you a fresh spinach fettuccine recipe in a sun dried tomato sauce that was amazing. This time, I broke out the angel hair pasta cutter and made a tomato angel hair pasta that was incredibly fresh and light. You take your basic egg pasta recipe and add 1 to 2 tablespoons of tomato paste. Then, I made what I like to call my “green sauce” which was a combination of broccoli and spinach. Talk about fresh pasta!!
Garlicky Spinach and Broccoli Pasta Sauce
|Prep time||15 minutes|
|Cook time||15 minutes|
|Total time||30 minutes|
|Meal type||Main Dish|
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 scallion (sliced into rings)
- 3 cloves garlic (chopped)
- 1 cup dry white wine
- 1 head broccoli (cut into small florets)
- 1-1/2 cup fresh spinach leaves (packed)
- grated parmesan cheese to garnish
- 8oz angel hair pasta (fresh or boxed)
What a delicious and quick meal to put together. It’s not necessary to make your own pasta every time. I mean, who has time for that with kids, sports and homework? This is a good one to make when you’re going to a blog conference for the weekend and leaving hubby behind. It re-heats very well and he won’t starve. I know. I’m leaving tomorrow and he has plenty to eat while I’m gone.
