Spinach Pasta Recipe - Pasta with Spinach sauce

Spinach Pasta Recipe
It has become a routine these days to grab a small pack of pasta atleast every month to try new pasta recipes. A day back I had few palak left so thought of making spinach pasta with it. I got the basic idea of this recipe from kitchen super stars show, modified it according to the available ingredients in my pantry. It is so simple to make and am sure kids will like it too.
The climate is very chill and windy here...and eating anything hot hot feels just like heaven!

  4. Add cooked pasta give a quick stir then add breadcrumbs and mix once.Switch off.Spinach Pasta Recipe_step4

My Notes:

  • Add water only till immersing level while cooking spinach. Dont drain the water instead use it for cooking the sauce,
  • I used mac pasta variety, you can try with any pasta variety like fusilli,penne,spaghetti etc. I used palak spinach which was a very great combo!
  • I used amul cheese cubes, if you get parmesan cheese then use that.
