Spinach and goat cheese pasta

Today I decided to make the most of my lazy Saturday and did not even bother to go out to stock my fridge. So I decided to make a good use of what I already had. Looking for inspirations I came across this recipe, loved how it looked on a plate and imaged it must taste equally good. And it did!

Ingredients (3 portions)

  • Pasta (I used penne)
  • 300g spinach (I used frozen)
  • 30g goat cheese (soft)
  • 80ml single cream
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • few pinches of ground nutmeg
  • salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • olive oil for frying
How to do it

  1. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet
  2. Chop onion and garlic finely (I grate my garlic) and fry with some olive oil for 2-3 minutes
  3. Add water, spinach and cover the pan. Let it simmer on a low heat for a few minutes (until fresh spinach has wilted / the frozen one has cooked)
  4. Add cream, nutmeg, salt and pepper and cook until the sauce has thickened
  5. Plate up and crumble goat cheese on top and sprinkle with some fresh grounded pepper
