I love spinach but I haven’t seen fresh spinach here. These days I really wanted have something spinach dish. So I went to the supermarket and got a box of frozen spinach mixed with gorgonzola. It was just discounted! Then I cooked this creamy tomato and spinach pasta with my inspiration. It was great! So I’ll take a note of this quick recipe.

  1.  Bring a large pot of water to boil over high heat. Add the pasta and salt, then cook until al dente. Slice garlic, mushroom and onion.
  2. While waiting for the pasta to cook, bring a pan then add garlic and pour olive oil. Saute garlic until become golden and have good aroma, add onion and mushroom and stir it well. Pour 2 or 3 table spoons of white wine (It is like flambe but with no flame.) and then add a cup of tomato passata. Add frozen spinach with gorgonzola and pour a half cup of the cooking water from pot. Simmer 5 to 7 minutes until frozen spinach with gorgonzola are warmed well. Add a pinch of salt.
  3. When the pasta is al dente, drain and toss with the sauce to coat.

Guten appetit!!

あるようで案外見かけない、生のほうれん草。
ここ最近、もやもやっとほうれん草が食べたいなぁと思い続けていて、それと同時にレシピもぼんやり思い描いていました。今日、立ち寄ったスーパーで冷凍のほうれん草を発見!ほうれん草だけの商品に加えて、チーズやクリーム?と混ぜたタイプの商品も数多く並んでいます。そこで、今回は特価品でもある(笑)、ゴルゴンゾーラ混ぜのほうれん草を購入してみました。
そんな、ゴルゴンゾーラ混ぜほうれん草から着想を得て、ほうれん草のクリーミートマトソースを作ってみました。(この際とことん「ほうれん草」にしよう!と思い、麺もほうれん草入り。)
想像通りに美味しくできて、食べ終わると自然と笑みがこぼれました。ちょっと嬉しい!!
