Notes

If fresh spinach isn’t available, you can use a frozen 10 ounce package of spinach that has been cooked and drained. Add it to the musrhooms and garlic with the pasta.

For an even quicker dinner, wash, and chop the vegetables ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator in separate containers.They will be ready to go when it’s time to start cooking.

Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to three days. Freezing is not recommended.

Add 1/2 pound cooked chicken or shrimp to the pasta.

Change up the veggies, replace the spinach withsauteed kale,  steamed broccoli or sauteed zucchini.
