1 1/2 cups
chopped fresh spinach
Loved it! It tastes creamy without having to add loads of cream or anything too fattening. This will be made again :)
I normally make a meat sauce but when I saw this quick and easy recipe I figured I would give it a shot and I'm so glad I did. I was surprised at the amount of flavor the sauce had and how nice and thick it turned out. It's a great way to use up some of those ingredients I always seem to have on hand!
This recipe is really yummy and all of the ingredients are things I regularly have on hand. I served it over spinach linguine and it was divine. I did use red pepper flakes instead of hot sauce and added a package of precooked sausage. Next time I think I'll use 1 T olive oil instead of the butter and cut the entire recipe in half since it's just my husband and I.
Great easy recipe
