A recent evening found me along for supper! The boys were at their grandparents, my husband was at work... I could cook something just for me! No need to worry about everyone moaning or groaning about how "gross" it would be.
I perused the cupboards and came up with a can of artichoke hearts.
Earlier that day, I had been at the farm and harvested some of the juiciest, sweetest overwintered spinach I've ever tasted.
I grabbed a box of whole wheat penne and got to cooking.
It's a really simple dish! I simply boiled & drained the pasta. I added the pasta back to the pot, then started on the vegetables. Then I cut some of the artichoke hearts in half and tossed them in. I washed the spinach, tore it up, and tossed it in as well. Then I poured a bit of extra-virgin olive oil on, sprinkled in some parmesan romano cheese, added a dash of salt and a bit of garlic powder, and some red pepper flakes... just because I like a bit of heat and didn't have to worry about the kiddos eating it. Woo-hoo!
It was delicious. What have you been cooking lately?
