One Pot Pasta Quickie

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

I have been getting quite a few questions on what I eat on I try to eat as clean and lean as possible but that is pretty much impossible and not wallet friendly, especially when eating out. My kitchen is where I am really choosy about the kind of food that I choose to nourish my body with. Very unfortunately, with such pickiness (often overly picky) I recently experienced dizziness and fatigue. That really scared the crap out of me and after much procrastination and pushing from the boyfriend, I finally visited the doctor. The results of the blood test is yet ready but the doctor did mention that I have a slight low blood pressure which could be normal for my size. I could clearly feel how my body wasn't acting the same. Fingers crossed that everything is fine. 

See, I cannot diet, even if I wanted to. I can never be stick thin, I am not and I don't want to be. :)

Here is a real quick and nutritious pasta recipe(vegan friendly) which I tweaked a lil from Pinterest.

Here is what you need:

For 3 servings

I have used:

200g of Spaghetti (depending of how much you think will be enough)
1 Bunch of Spinach
3 Tablespoons of Peas
1.5 Cup of Sliced Mushrooms
2 Cloves of Garlic (minced)
1/2 Teaspoon of Thyme
150ml of Double Cream (aka Heavy Cream)
4 Tablespoon of Grated Parmesan Cheese

And because I love white wine in my pasta,  1 Generous Splash of Sauvignon Blanc.

In a large pot, place spaghetti, mushroom, peas, garlic, thyme and 2 1/4 cups of water, season with salt and pepper (to your liking).

Bring it to boil and add in spinach. Once Spinach is just cooked, drain excess water, leaving just about enough for the bottom of the pot. Stir in double cream and parmesan cheese. Add in a generous splash of white wine and cook until reduced. 

Serve white it's hot.


Hopefully, you are satisfied with this quickie. Cheers!
