Pasta with spinach and tomato sauce

Today I want to share with you a very easy recipe for those days that you want something yummy, but without spending too much time cooking.

I used the measures below to serve 4 people but this will depend on how hungry you are ;-)

 Warning: this is one of the recipes I’ve created myself without following any recipe. I just added what I had at home and I ended up having a delicious meal.

Pasta-spinach-tomato-meal

Ingredients:

  • 150gr of frozen spinach
  • 1 big carrot
  • 1 onion
  • 250gr minced beef
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • ½ teaspoon of pepper
  • ½ teaspoon of nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 laurel/bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Parmesan cheese
  • 50gr Greek cheese
  • 400gr of pasta

Instructions:

  1. Start with the sauce. Chop the onions and carrots.
  2. Add the olive oil into a pan and add them. Let it cook for around 5 min till the onions are translucent and the carrots tender.
  3. Add the minced beef, the pepper, nutmeg, garlic powder and salt.
  4. Once the meat is cooked, include the chopped tomatoes, laurel/bay leaves and the defrosted spinach.
  5. While the sauce is cooking, put the pasta into boiled water for 10 min. till is al dente. I always add a pinch of salt and some olive oil to give it some flavour.
  6. Mix the cooked pasta into the sauce and add the Greek cheese.
  7. I normally add the parmesan cheese once it’s served
  8. Enjoy your meal!!

Love,
