Spinach Pasta


My husband and I have pasta once or twice a week as we both love it. I like the combination of pasta and spinach always, they go well with each other. My hubby loves pasta and I have seen him enjoying marinara sauce pasta at the restaurant but I love white sauce based pasta. I have already tried and posted vegetable pasta which we love the most. Last week when I made this spinach pasta he loved it so much, that he was quietly digging in without telling a word ;). Any bachelor can try making this! Kids will surely love this too <3.


  • Pasta (elbow pasta) - 1cup 
  • Baby Spinach - 2cups 
  • Garlic (finely chopped)- 1tbsp
  • Parmesan grated - 2-3tbsp
  • Milk 2% - 1/4cup 
  • Chilli flakes - 2tsp
  • Onion (finely chopped) - 2tbsp
  • Green chillies - 2 
  • Salt as needed 
  • Olive oil as needed


  • Cook pasta with salt, olive oil, till soft, as per the packing instructions. Drain the water and keep aside.
  • Remove the leaves off the stem and wash them. 
  • Heat a pan with oil in medium flame, add garlic and fry for a second without burning.

  • Then add onion, green chilli, saute in medium flame for about 2-3 minutes. Add spinach, fry till it reduces in quantity. Mix well.
  • Now add pasta, mix well then add grated parmesan along with milk. Give it a quick toss. Cook for 1 minute not more than that, because the milk may curdle.

  • Finally add chilli flakes, mix well and switch off the flame.
  • Serve it hot with your choice of bread. While serving add grated cheese and chilli flakes.


  • You can also use normal spinach.
  • You can use half n half instead of milk.
