I am big fan of quick meal, specially it if is liked by my kiddo too.


I make it mostly after coming back from office when we want to eat some home cook food and don’t have enough energy to cook complete meal. Spinach with pasta is perfect combination of tasty and healthy meal. If you have never made this before then try it for sure.

It hardly take a minute after boiling pasta. I have a question, do you add olive oil while boiling the pasta? If yes then please don’t waste olive oil. Its better you add it after drain pasta. Always add salt in water while boiling pasta. Water should be salty like sea water.

    I’d never have thought of adding Spinach to pasta but now that I’ve read this post, I can’t wait to try it! My 4 year old loves pasta, but isn’t so keen on spinach. Perhaps this dish will get her to eat more than a tablespoon of spinach.

      Hi Elodie! Spinach and garlic is a perfect combination, and when you mix it with olive, oh my god! it does magic on pasta. I love this every time I make, but seriously don’t remember when was the first I made it and from where I got the inspiration for this recipe. :). love to little one. Thanks for stopping by and letting me know that you like the recipe.
