Secret Spinach Sauce
Serves: Enough for 4-6 servings of pasta
  • 100g spinach
  • 70g cream cheese
  • 30g toasted or untoasted pine nuts (optional) I find they add a nice texture and depth but if you don't have them then the sauce still tastes fab without
  • 2 garlic cloves
  1. Put your spinach in a bowl and cover with cling film. Place in the microwave for 1-2 minutes until totally wilted. You can alternatively do this in a dry saucepan.
  2. Then put the spinach in a blender (you can use a hand blender) and add garlic, cream cheese, pine nuts and then blitz.
  3. Stir through some pre-cooked pasta or as a vibrant dip with carrots or pitta fingers.
  4. It will keep well covered for a few days in the fridge.
