- 1/2 pound pasta, uncooked
- 5 ounces raw spinach
- 1 jar Alfredo sauce (I used Classico roasted garlic)
- a whole bunch of garlic powder (because I am out of fresh garlic)
I cooked the pasta, then drained it except for about an ounce of the water. Then I threw in the spinach and let it cook in the water for a bit (not a lot of water, just enough to "steam" the spinach). Once the spinach was almost-cooked, I threw in the pasta and stirred. Then I poured over the jar of Alfredo sauce and garlic powder and stirred. It was delicious.
And no, I didn't take pictures because hubby's plate was the prettiest, and right before I could take a picture, he unscrewed the top of the crushed red pepper and poured the entire jar over his pasta before he realized that you flip up the top of the lid to sprinkle it on. Since this happened to him at a restaurant once also, this was hilarious and amazing and I nearly squirted seltzer out my nose.
In other news, I started running on a treadmill today. I am immensely proud of myself and plan to lose the 45 pounds I wish to lose by doing this, assuming my knees and shins can handle it. Grrr. Hear me roar.
