Creamy Tomato and Spinach Pasta
This is one of those super quick pasta recipes that is ready in about 20 minutes. Use any kind of pasta and serve with this creamy Gorgonzola sauce with fresh spinach.
1 (16 ounce) package fusilli pasta
1 ½ tablespoons butter
- 1 ½ tablespoons butter
1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 4 cups fresh spinach
- ½ cup Gorgonzola cheese
- 1 pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook fusilli in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes.
- In the meantime, melt butter in a skillet over medium heat and cook shallots until soft and translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour in cream and cook until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Add spinach and crumble in Gorgonzola cheese. Season with salt and pepper and cook until spinach is wilted and sauce has thickened, about 4 minutes.
- Drain fusilli and toss with sauce. Serve immediately.
