Spinach and pasta

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
Your favorite pasta, cooked as directed
Your favorite Italian sauce,
Bottled or homemade
Spinach, cooked and drained
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Fresh Parmesan cheese, grated

Make your favorite spaghetti/lasagne/pasta sauce. When I go all out, I put chopped onions, chopped green pepper, sliced fresh mushrooms, fresh garlic, fresh parsley or parsley flakes, and some sauteed Italian sausage in my tomato-based sauce. If I don't have time, I use my favorite bottled sauce.

Cook and drain your favorite pasta. I have used many kinds for this, usually whatever I have on hand.

You may use fresh or frozen spinach, chopped or leaf. I prefer fresh leaf spinach, but let time be your guide. Cook the spinach in a Corning ware dish in the microwave.

To assemble: Place a generous serving of pasta on a microwave-proof plate.

Next, put on the spinach. Then some shredded mozzarella cheese. Ladle sauce over all. Cover with waxed paper and microwave until cheese is melted.

Uncover and sprinkle with fresh Parmesan.

Serve with a green salad, garlic bread and red wine. Enjoy! Recipe by: Mary Ann Chandler Posted to Digest eat-lf.v097.n079 by Mac <w.ma.chandler@...> on Mar 23, 1997
