Everyday Food and Garlic and Spinach Spaghetti
I love Bill,it's hard not to,he makes it look so easy and effortless on his shows and his books inspire and i knew i had to buy his latest book just before Christmas.It's a book that you can of course use every day,from Monday when you promise yourself you will eat better and start with salads,to Sunday where it's time for a big breakfast and slow cooked food.
The other week i made garlic and spinach spaghetti after work as these are the times when you need something fast but not compromising on taste.And with pasta you can make a big serve and take some for work the following day.
80ml Extra virgin olive oil
6 garlic cloves,thinly sliced
sliced red chilli,to taste
80 ml white wine
90g baby english spinach
small handful finely chopped fresh flat leaf(italian) parsley
Grated parmesan cheese
Cook the spaghetti in a a large pan of salted boiling water until al dente. Meanwhile, put the olive oil,garlic and chilli in a frying pan over medium heat and cook,stirring often, for about 5 minutes
until the garlic is goldern. Add the wine and cook,stirring for 20 seconds. Add the drained pasta and spinach and toss to coat it well.Season with sea salt and sprinkle with parsley,then serve with lots of grated parmesan.
