Creamy Spinach Pasta


One of my favorite dairy indulgences has always been a spinach slice of pizza. Honestly, though, I think it’s unfair that it’s become a New York pizza shop classic, because although it’s convenient to eat, the classic ingredients in a spinach slice work together so well, it deserves to be served at a proper dinner table. Glad it got a chance for that kind of remake here!


Prepare the Creamy Spinach Pasta

1. Melt butter over medium heat.
2. Add garlic and stir until just fragrant (do not let it get brown). Add spinach and toss to coat. Turn off heat.
3. Add ricotta and allow to cook another minute or two. Add pasta and combine well. Add heavy cream and salt as desired.
4. Serve topped with Parmesan cheese.


Squeeze spinach in a thin kitchen towel. Then place in the microwave to evaporate even more liquid before adding it to the pan.


If you want a slightly lighter dish or you don’t have heavy cream, you can reserve pasta water and add that instead.
