Pasta with sautéed spinach and garlic is delicious, healthy and filling. Instead of using cream we use a mixture of milk and cottage cheese with a combination of spinach and garlic - nothing less than perfect. The sauce on the pasta sits well, looks great and has a great taste.

For the Pinach

  • 14 oz - about half a bag - frozen can be bought at any 7/11 Medallions of spinach
  • 3 Cloves Crushed Garlic
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

For the tasty mixture!

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Full Tablespoon Flour
  • 1 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 2 Full Tablespoons Cottage Cheese
  • A pinch - As Needed Salt

Pasta - we recommend pene!

  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 Cloves Crushed Garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon optional Crushed Chili


  • You should put the pasta in the water now - the pasta should be ready before the final stage of the sauce.

Let’s start with the spinach!

  • Prepare the spinach using the instructions on the bag (preferably in the microwave). It should be soft and chopped.
  • Mix the spinach with the rest of its ingredients (garlic, pepper, salt and lemon juice).
  • Set aside.

Prepare the sautéed sauce

  • Melt the butter in a small pan.
  • When butter is melted - Add the flour and cook, stirring until a block like shape has formed.
  • Remove from the heat. Gradually add the milk, continually stirring – this should melt the butter and flour block.
  • Return to the fire and bring to a boil, stirring constantly - until everything is melted and united.
  • When the milk is boiling - Add the cottage cheese and continue to mix until even the cottage cheese melts and becomes one.
  • Add a little salt and turn off the heat.
  • Wait until the pasta is ready, remove it from the water and wash it down a bit - and continue...

Prepare the sautéed spinach sauce

  • In a large skillet (or a wide, flat pan), heat the olive oil.
  • When the oil is hot, add the chili and fry for 10 seconds until the color starts to come out.
  • Add the garlic and fry for 20 seconds.
  • Add the spinach and cheese mixture and mix very well.
  • When everything is mixed - add the drained pasta and stir with a wooden spoon until all the pasta is covered with sauce.
  • You made it, well done! Now enjoy!
