There are a lot of foods I love more than anything… pizza, tacos, cheese, an almost rare steak, bread with tons of salty butter; but my favorite is PASTA! There is nothing more comforting. I am not too picky about what kind of pasta. I will eat a plain bowl of pasta with just butter and parm; a trait which I have passed down to my girls. Heck, we will eat it plain out of the pot 😉
Anyways, I had some wilting mushrooms and spinach, and I found about half of a pound of spaghetti in the pantry. I sauteed the mushrooms in olive oil while I cooked the pasta. Right at the end of the pasta cooking, I added the spinach to the mushrooms. Once it wilted, I added in the pasta and mixed them all together with a bit of pasta water and more olive oil. I also added about 2 tablespoons of butter and 1/3 cup Parmesaun cheese. Mix well. Add more pasta water, butter, olive oil, Parmesan cheese as needed.
Feel free to add some shrimp, scallops, or grilled chicken for extra protein.
