Pasta with Spinach and Cherry tomatoes


A tasteful and healthy combination of pasta with spinach and cherry tomatoes.



Ingredients:

1 ½ cup fusilli pasta
1/2 cup white sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup fresh spinach, chopped
1/4 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
Salt & pepper to taste
2 tbsp olive oil

Method:

  • Boil salted water in a large pot. Add the pasta and cook until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain pasta and keep aside. (Reserve some pasta cooking liquid to use further)
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in small pan, add white sauce and mix in cooked pasta well.
  • Cook for a minute and turn off heat. 
  • Heat remaining oil in another pan, add garlic and cook until fragrant.
  • Add the spinach and tomatoes and cook until the spinach wilts, about 2 more minutes. Add the pasta and toss. Add salt, pepper, and the required amount of pasta cooking liquid and stir to combine.
  • Serve hot with some grated cheese.
