I have always valued time in my life. There seems to never be enough time to get anything done, which is more so true after you have children. I’m constantly finding ways to get my tasks done more efficiently throughout the day while being able to interact and be the mother I need to be for LO.
Today’s recipe is one of my favorite one pot pastas that you can do even if you don’t have much time for dinner
What you will need:
Pasta noodles – I used the no yolk noodles that I already had in my cupboard. When I have penne, I often use penne pasta noodles
8 oz of Cream Cheese
Can of diced tomatoes
Fresh Spinach – about two handfuls
Green Onions – one or two stems
1 cup of water
Spices – garlic, oregano, basil, salt, pepper
Put your pasta noodles and cup of water into your pot. Bring to boil and then bring down to medium heat. Add cream cheese, diced tomatoes, and spices. I put about a teaspoon of each spice. Mix everything in.
Let pasta simmer for about 15-25 minutes, stir occasionally. The cream cheese will have mixed and melted with the diced tomatoes. Once your pasta is in the perfect texture, turn the pasta down to low heat and add your spinach and green onions.
Stir in until spinach looks cooked. This should only take a minute or two. Don’t forget to taste test your pasta to see if you need to add any additional spices.
