This is a recipe I've been making for a while. My cousin gave it to me when I lived in Australia. It changes everytime I make it but here's the jist of it...


1 10oz Bag Baby Spinach
1/4 cup Pine Nuts (Optional)
1/2 Cup Basil chopped
4 Cloves of Garlic
2 TBSP Parsley
4 TBSP Olive Oil
1/4 cup Pine Nuts (Optional)
Cubed Feta Cheese (Up to one cup)


Pick stems off spinach leaves. Wash spinach in strainer until damp. Cook spinach in low - medium heated non-stick pan for a couple minutes, doesn't take long to cook.

Put the cooked spinach, basil, the first measured pine nuts, garlic and parsley into a food processor, stream in olive oil to loosen. You may need more or less depending on your ingredients. More often than not, I use feta in place of the nuts.

Mix with cooked pasta in a wide pan with cubed feta till coated and cheese is softened slightly.
