Spaghetti with Spinach



  • Spaghetti ~ a fistful
  • Spinach ~ a bunch
  • Red pepper flakes, Salt ~ to taste
  • Garlic, chopped fine ~ 2
  • Water ~ to boil the spaghetti
  • Olive oil ~ 2 Tbsp.


  • Boil the spaghetti as per instructions on the package, until al dente.
  • Add oil and chopped garlic to a skillet, and turn on the stove. In a low flame, let this be on the stove for about 10 minutes, so that the oil is infused with garlic flavor. Make sure the garlic doesn’t burn.
  • Add the spinach and pepper flakes, and saute until the spinach welts.
  • Now add the spaghetti and salt and give it a good toss.
  • Turn off the stove, and serve with some shaved parmesan cheese on top.
