Spinach Pasta- Easy Pasta Recipes- Healthy & Vegan


We are pasta fans and I keep trying different combinations each time. Since I make pasta often at home, I keep it simple and mostly make them without cheese. Recently I posted another easy pasta recipe- Lemon Garlic Pasta. Today's recipe is Spinach Pasta. I have posted Spinach Rice too with similar combination. 

What are the ingredients needed?

Pasta, 1/2 lb
Olive oil, 2-3 teaspoon
Cumin seeds, 1/2 teaspoon
Onion, 1 no.(small)
Garlic, 3-4 cloves
Dried red chillies, 2-3 nos.
Spinach, 1 1/2 cup (cleaned and chopped)
Ground pepper, 1/2 teaspoon
Salt, to taste.

How it is made?
  1. Cook pasta as per package instructions. Once they are cooked, drain them and set them aside.
  2. Chop the onions and mince the garlic and keep them ready.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet, add cumin seeds and  dry red chillies fry for a minute. Then add the chopped onions and minced garlic and saute for few minutes.
  4. Then add the spinach and salt to taste and cover and cook in low flame till the spinach is cooked.( It takes only few minutes)
  5. Then add the cooked pasta to this and add the ground pepper mix well and serve.

Notes:
  • I have used angel hair pasta. You can use other types of pastas too.
  • While cooking pasta, add salt and oil to the water. 
  • Adding dried red chillies are optional. You can omit it if you don't prefer it.
  • Instead of fresh spinach, you can use frozen spinach too.
