Spinach Penne Fresca

A low calorie easy dish that's both light and satisfying. A great option for lunch.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. First start by filling a pot with water and bringing it up to a boil on the stove. Once it has come to a boil, add whole wheat pasta.
  2. After about ten minutes of cooking, the pasta should be done. drain pasta and put pot back on the stove.
  3. While the pasta is on the stove. Measure out parmesan cheese and spinach.
  4. After draining pasta, put it back into the pot and add the cup of lemon juice.
  5. Add spinach and parmesan cheese. Put the lid of the pot on and let it sit for a couple minutes. Then pull the lid off. The spinach should be fully wilted and the cheese melted.
  6. Next add seasonings. I used crushed red pepper flakes, fresh cracked black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and dried Italian herbs.
  7. After adding your seasonings, the dish is complete. Plate and enjoy!
