A luscious and full of flavors pasta with minced beef, lots of spinach and sun dried tomatoes. Made aromatic with garlic, served with pine nuts and chili flakes.
It’s a pasta that uses soya cream instead of heavy cream, giving it a creamy and delicious taste and yet it is light and less fat.
It is the meal we eat when I didn’t plan anything for dinner or when we are busy and I don’t feel the desire to make an elaborate meal. It is also the recipe I like to make when we want plain, simple, good food. ( I made it in the first place for my son, who’s desire is to become very strong and eat spinach every two days:) )
Well, if you were searching for a hearty and easy dinner recipe, you found it!
