spinach fettuccine

3-Cheese and Spinach Fettuccine

This is such a luxurious dish and if you like your pasta recipes creamy you will love this one. Spinach combines with 3 kinds of cheese, as well as milk and cream, for a very creamy texture. A little cayenne and cinnamon, along with garlic, add an aromatic touch to the dish. You can use fresh or frozen spinach in this dish. It does not need to be fully cooked, just plunged into boiling water if it is fresh, or cooked until the leaves separate if you are using the frozen kind.

The recipe makes enough for 4 people, but it is very easy to double if you are serving a crowd. Serve this just as it is or add a simple tomato salad if you want a contrasting, tasty side dish. A lightly chilled, fruity red wine (Italian of course) would be good with this dish, or even a medium-bodied white. As for dessert, stick to fresh fruit or something quite light, since this dish is so rich and luxurious, so you get a nice contrast.

Making this is simple. You will be cooking the sauce in one pot and the pasta in another, and then combining the two. Because the sauce is quite delicate and has a lot of dairy in there, it is important not only to keep the heat gentle, but also to stir the sauce as often as needed. Feel free to use all milk instead of some milk and some cream if you want a dish that is lower in fat, or even use all cream and no milk if you want it super-luxurious. Continue reading
