Category: Pasta

 Ingredients List

  • 8 oz Penne pasta
  • 2 tb Butter
  • 2 tb Olive oil
  • 1/4 c Pine nuts
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced
  • 1 lb Spinach, washed and trimmed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 c Currants soaked in port wine


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add penne and boil for 10 minutes or
according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a heavy 12-inch skillet heat
butter and olive oil until foamy. Add pine nuts and saute, stirring
continuously until they turn golden. Add garlic and saute for a minute to
release the aroma. Add spinach in two batches if you must and toss together
just until wilted. Season with salt and pepper. Add a tablespoon or so of
water to get spinach steaming. Drain pasta and serve in bowl. Toss with
wilted spinach and garnish with port soaked currants.
