I'm addicted to simple pasta dishes for lunch! My main reason is that Handsome doesn't exactly enjoy those kinds of meals, and it's the only time I get to indulge in them. My latest creation is one that he definitely wouldn't like, since it involves a cream sauce and spinach.
Creamy Marinara Pasta
I started with this simple white sauce, using a 1-1-1 ratio, adding in a chopped clove of garlic with the butter, and stirring in a 1/4 cup of shredded Parmesan to finish it. I used about 2 ounces of angel hair pasta, but you could use whatever.
After the sauce is completed, simply stir in:
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 cup chopped fresh spinach
1/2 cup marinara sauce
and heat through. Toss your cooked pasta with the sauce and Bob's your uncle! A delicious lunch for one.
Note: this really makes a lot of sauce for one, so you could easily stretch it to two servings.
