Pasta Recipe: Creamy Pasta

You’ll need:

  1. Pasta
  2. Cheddar and Parmesan Cheese (mozzarella could work too)
  3. Seasonings:
    1. Salt
    2. Black pepper
    3. Ginger powder
    4. Garlic powder
    5. Thyme
    6. Dried pepper
    7. Bullion cubes (knorr)
  4. Spinach
  5. Mushrooms (feel free to substitute this with any protein of your choice)
  6. Cooking oil
  7. Butter
  8. Onions

Process:

Boil pasta, don’t forget to add salt and oil in the water before you pour in the pasta.

For the creamy sauce, use about a cup of cream, cheese, and 1/4 cup of fresh milk. Alternatively you can use a store-bought cheesy pasta sauce, or alfredo sauce.

To combine the two,

Melt butter in a frying pan, add in chopped onions, minced garlic, salt and chopped mushrooms.

Pour in the creamy sauce, and add spices to taste. I used black pepper, knorr cubes, dried pepper from Nigeria, ginger powder, garlic powder, and thyme. Adjust for taste.

Allow the sauce to cook for about 5-10 minutes.

Pour in 2-3 handfuls of spinach (chopped or whole, your call). Let this cook for another 7 mins.

Pour in the pasta ( al dente) and let the mixture cook for about 5-10 minutes on low heat.

Voila!
