Spinach and Pea Orecchiette

This quick and easy pasta dish features spinach and peas which are both incredibly nutritious. This pasta is very easy to make and has a light sauce which helps to bring together the pasta and the vegetables.

Recipe from Savory Nothings

-12 ounces orecchiette
-1/3 cup 1% milk
-10 ounces spinach, thawed from frozen
-½ cup peas, thawed from frozen
-1 cup grated parmesan cheese
-Salt, pepper and ground nutmeg, to taste

Cook the pasta according to package directions until al dente. Drain and add back into the pot. Over medium-high heat and add the cream and spinach. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat and stir in the peas and cheese. Season to taste before tossing with the pasta.

I thought this was a nice, easy to make dinner. It didn't involve too many pots and pans and the sauce had a nice amount of flavor. This was something that I enjoyed as a quick week night meal and I think it would be successful with variations on the vegetables as well.
