Yummy Green Pasta

on May 9, 2013

Or “geen pasta” as one of my little monsters call it.

Like most of my recipes, embarrassingly simple. This is like a pesto with a little extra protein and fiber kick from the beans.

For this version, I used:

Green Pasta

Green Pasta

  • 1 bag of baby spinach
  • 1 can of cannellini beans
  • About 1/2 bunch of cilantro that I had leftover from another dinner
  • Garlic, oil, salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: milk or cheese

Boil pasta, and puree the spinach, beans, cilantro, and peeled garlic cloves in a food processor or blender. Add in oil, water, or chicken broth to thin it out. When your pasta is done cooking, drain and reserve some of the water (or use chicken broth) in case the puree is too thick. Add the puree into the pot, and dinner is served.

For leftovers the next night, I added some milk and parmesan cheese to make it a little creamier. They loved it, and we did too.
