Creamy Spinach Pasta with Pine Nuts

 Creamy Spinach Pasta

I came home from work, had in mind that I wanted to use up that spinach that was lying around in the fridge and then I whipped up this dinner within 20 minutes! I was so impressed by myself that I wanted to get the recipe out to you guys as soon as possible because it actually tasted pretty good!!

I’ve been trying to incorporate more leafy greens in my diet because they are so healthy, but as probably 95% of the population, I’m not a big fan of eating green vegetables… That is why I have to disguise them in delicious meals like this one! And it totally worked. So if you’re anything like me, go and give this recipe a try! 😉 And tell me what you think!
