Simple Spinach and Parmesan Pasta

What an easy yet flavorful meal for a quick weeknight dinner.  If only everything that cooked in 15 minutes tasted so good!  Thanks to Naturally Ella for this one.

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 1/2 bag baby spinach (I get the 6-oz bags)
  • 3 ounces (2 servings) pasta (I love it with spaghetti)
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Bring a pot of generously salted water to a boil.  Add pasta and cook according to package instructions.  
  2. While pasta is cooking, melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat.  Add garlic and saute for 1 minute, then add thyme and saute another minute.  Stir in spinach and cook until wilted, 2-3 minutes.  Remove from  heat and set aside until pasta is done.
  3. Drain pasta and toss with the spinach mixture.  Stir in Parmesan.
  4. Serve with extra Parmesan and thyme on top.
