“A simple and light spinach with pasta recipe which I make for lunch at least once a week. My oven doesn't work so this is baking free!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil pasta according to package directions but only till its almost done.
  2. Wash and clean the spinach and steam with a little water for 4 minutes in the microwave.
  3. Once it is steamed, blenderize it with the same water to get a spinach paste which is kind of watery
  4. In a large non stick skillet, heat oil.
  5. When oil gets hot, add the chopped garlic.
  6. When the garlic is slightly browned add the onions and stir fry till the onions turn brown.
  7. Add the tofu and stir fry till the tofu changes color a bit and looks slightly as if it has been fried.
  8. At this point add the red pepper flakes/powder and stir. Immediately add the the spinach paste
  9. Let it simmer.
  10. Add salt.
  11. When the water from the spinach reduces add the semi cooked pasta and let it cook completely. If you think more water is needed add that.
  12. I don't add cheese, but can also do the last step in the oven with mozzarella on top.
  13. I like this hot and cold--tastes good every way.
