Creamy Spinach Sauce

Pasta with Creamy Spinach Sauce

The sauce reminds me of creamed spinach, a favorite childhood dish of mine. The recipe makes enough to generously sauce a pound of pasta. It is very tasty and easy to make. Great when you need a home made meal, but don’t have a lot of time. You can also use this sauce on hot cooked rice or baked potatoes.

The recipe uses frozen spinach, but you can use fresh spinach , if you prefer. Just cook down 12-16 oz. of fresh spinach and use like the frozen spinach.

There is Parmesan cheese in the sauce, but I like to serve extra on the side.

Creamy Spinach Sauce

1/4 c. butter

1 (10 oz.) package frozen spinach, thawed and drained

1 t. salt

1 c. ricotta cheese

1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 c. milk

Heat spinach in butter for 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and heat gently until warmed through. Do not boil sauce. Toss sauce over hot, cooked pasta. Makes 2 1/2 cups, enough for about a pound of pasta.
