Meatless Monday: Spinach Fettuccine Aglio e Olio

Spinach Fettuccine Aglio e Olio

MEATLESS MONDAY! Don’t you just love all those different types of pasta found in your local supermarket nowadays!? I’m always thinking of ways to turn them into a great dish. After spending the last 12 days in Italy and enjoying all their wonderful pasta I’m ready to cook again! Today’s Meatless Monday menu combines a healthy spinach fettuccine with a classic Italian Aglio e Olio sauce. Aglio e Olio simply means ‘Garlic & Oil’ in Italian. It may sound simple and it may even be simple to make…but boy is it delicious!

Spinach Fettuccine Aglio e Olio
1 lb Spinach Fettuccine pasta
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
6 cloves garlic, peeled & sliced thin
pinch red pepper flakes
salt
freshly grated Pecorino cheese

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and prepare pasta as package directs; drain (reserving 1/2 cup to 1 cup cooking liquid) and place back into pot.

Pour garlic and oil into the cooked spinach fettuccine and toss gently. Add a little pasta liquid if you like it a little more moist.
