Farfalle with Mushrooms and Spinach
6 ounces farfalle (bow-tie) pasta
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion chopped or sliced, depending on your preference
1 cup sliced portobello or other fresh mushrooms
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups thinly sliced fresh spinach
1-2 sprigs of fresh thyme, leaves pulled off
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
It was perfect for a Friday night, carb-heavy, easy meal. I needed carbs for my 13 mile run the next morning!
I added grilled steak into the Friday night meal, but forgot the thyme. It was still tasty but needed a little more flavor... so Saturday I made the same meal with the thyme, a few cut up patty-pan squash and kept it vegetarian. The thyme seemed to be the missing ingredient on Friday.
Turned out super delish!
Patty-pan squash... tender and so flavorful!
Olympics, porch dinner and a warm summer night...Doesn't get much better than this.
P.S. The photo on the left is from recipe.com and mine is on the right... pretty close, eh??
I LOVE SPINACH & MUSHROOMS!
