Green Goodness pasta sauce!

Recommended Posts

I didn't originally come up with this recipe... I saw something very close on Everyday Italian and HAD to try it. It turned out amazing!

 

Servings: 2

Points: 9 (whole recipe, 4.5 per serving)

 

Ingredients:

1 small garlic clove (0)

1/2 c. fat free ricotta cheese (1)

1-2 cups fresh spinach (as much as you'd like, really) (0)

4 tsp. Parmesean cheese, divided (1)

4 oz. whole wheat rotini or penne (6, 3 per serving)

2 small spoonfuls pasta cooking water

 

Directions:

Boil water and cook pasta.

 

In a blender, combine garlic, spinach, ricotta and 2 tsp parmesean cheese. Blend until smooth.

 

Add to warm pasta, and add 1 spoonful of pasta water to each serving, or 2 spoonfuls for one big serving. Mix well.

 

Top each servings with 1 tsp. of parmesean.

 

 

*Note: You could try many variations of this. Adding tomato might be really good. I'm thinking of adding parley or cilantro. I also thought about making it with 2 laughing cow cheese wedges instead of ricotta.

I'm by myself for dinner tonight and will try this recipe. It is something that DH would not enjoy, but I would!! I will put some away for a lunch for the week. Thanks for a delicious sounding recipe. I have printed it up!
