Spaghettini with Spinach, Garlic and Lemon
If there is a recipe with pasta, garlic, and lemon in it....most likely I will try it!
I found this one and its another home run!
I love the light taste of the lemon, the color and addition of the spinach, and it's even something my kids will eat!
1 lb spaghettini, angel hair or spaghetti pasta
6 tablespoons olive oil
8 garlic cloves, crushed or minced
zest of one lemon
juice of one lemon
10 oz bag of baby spinach
salt and pepper to taste
What to do:
First, bring a large pot of well salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions.
Then, in a skillet heat, 6 tablespoons olive oil over medium low heat.
Add garlic and cook for 10 to 12 minutes to gently cook the garlic.
Add lemon zest and lemon juice.

Drain pasta well and transfer to a large bowl. Immediately add spinach and garlic lemon oil and toss everything together. Mound the pasta on a large platter and serve.
