Spinach Penne Fresca
A low calorie easy dish that's both light and satisfying. A great option for lunch.
||First start by filling a pot with water and bringing it up to a boil on the stove. Once it has come to a boil, add whole wheat pasta.
||After about ten minutes of cooking, the pasta should be done. drain pasta and put pot back on the stove.
||While the pasta is on the stove. Measure out parmesan cheese and spinach.
||After draining pasta, put it back into the pot and add the cup of lemon juice.
||Add spinach and parmesan cheese. Put the lid of the pot on and let it sit for a couple minutes. Then pull the lid off. The spinach should be fully wilted and the cheese melted.
||Next add seasonings. I used crushed red pepper flakes, fresh cracked black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and dried Italian herbs.
||After adding your seasonings, the dish is complete. Plate and enjoy!
