This is a delicious pasta dish with fresh spinach and rich white sauce. It is my version of fettuccini alfredo. Creamy spinach pasta looks and tastes great.

Recipe will serve 2-3.

Ingredients:

for Pasta

  • 6 0z penne pasta approx. 2 cups uncooked pasta
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup Mozzarella cheese
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Method

  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil, add salt and oil.

  4. hi mam,

    is heavy cream needed for this pasta… shall i prepare the pasta without heavy cream. what is the purpose of heavy cream in this..Please let me whether i have to use boiled milk or non boiled milk….

  5. This is a wonderful Italian-inspired dish, in which I added a few artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes, as well as a few diced water chestnuts for a bit of crunch.

    I like this recipe served with a crusty artisan bread and my olive oil dipping sauce, which contains: EVOO; balsamic vinegar; shredded Romano or Parmesan; fresh garlic and basil; and a few red pepper flakes.

    Thank you for sharing this awesome recipe. I found the best cream at my local Hispanic market in the deli. It’s called “cream favorita.”

    Bon appetit!

  6. Namaste Aunty,

  7. Hi Aunty,

  8. Hi Aunty,

    The Creamy Spinach Pasta looks really yummy. Thanks for such a delicious looking recipe. However, I would like to know what heavy cream do you use? where did you buy it from? Let me know the brand even.

    Thanks!

  9. I think instead of mozzarella cheese I would use parmesan cheese a’s it will make the sauce not stringy. And to make a white sauce for a cheese sauce I would use a roux – which is melt butter (not ghee as that will impart a ghee flavor and then add the flour.
