Ingredients

  • 1 (1-pound) box spinach fettuccine
  • For sauce:
  • 1 cup chopped frozen spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Additional fresh grated parmesan (optional)

Preparation

  1. Cook fettuccine according to package directions. While pasta is cooking prepare sauce.
  2. In a 4-quart saucepan mix spinach, cream, butter, parmesan, onion and garlic powders and salt, and simmer over low heat until combined and heated through.
  3. Pour sauce over fettuccine and mix well. Serve immediately with parmesan cheese on the side, if desired.

Tips

Tip: If not served immediately, the sauce will dry out on the pasta. (I refuse to expose how I came across this valuable lesson. Just take my word for it.) So if not serving immediately, keep sauce and pasta separate. Reheat and mix just before serving.
