spinach

 

Nothing fancy, but the flavour is outstanding. The entire meal is made with less than ten ingredients and in less than 30 minutes from the start to the table. Can you believe it? Pretty simple right?

 

Most of my pasta recipes are made with olive oil, but butter is a must in this case. It adds creamy, buttery flavour and ties everything together beautifully. You will love it.
