Are you stressing about what to make for dinner tonight or maybe you haven't even thought about dinner yet? Well, if you need a quick and easy dinner recipe, you have to make our 5-Ingredient Spinach Parmesan Pasta. It is hands down one of our all-time favorite meals.

Ingredients
  

  • Pasta– We like to use spaghetti but any pasta will work! Use whatever is in your pantry!)
  • Butter– The butter adds great flavor and I prefer it over olive oil in this pasta recipe but if you only have olive oil, it will work.
  • Garlic– Use fresh garlic and not garlic powder for maximum flavor.
  • Spinach– If you don’t have fresh spinach you can use frozen spinach in pinch. Kale or arugula would also be good.)
  • Parmesan Cheese– Splurge and use good Parmesan cheese.

Instructions
 

  • First, cook the pasta according to package directions. Make sure you salt your water and cook the pasta until al dente. Before you drain the pasta, make sure you reserve ½ cup of the pasta water! Drain the pasta and set aside.
  • Using the same pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add in the pasta and spinach. Gently toss and cook until spinach leaves are wilted. If the pasta starts to dry out, add in some of the reserved pasta water. We usually add about ? cup. Stir in ¼ cup of the Parmesan cheese and toss until combined. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.
  • Pour pasta into a large bowl. Garnish with additional Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
