Recipe Box # 23 - Spinach Alfredo Pasta

Taken in the dark in blackout
 I decided to post another of Miriam's recipes here since I was setting up the Recipe Box, this morning, and wanted a delicious dish.  This was creamy and for those of you who are gluten-free, it fits the bill.

Again, I am going to list only the ingredients.  Below is the recipe for the sauteed spinach.

Pasta of choice (I used shells)
1/2 cup butter (I used less - I rarely use butter so I chose to put in two tablespoons instead the amount given - I would guess, it would have been better with all of the butter)
garlic cloves
Cream cheese (I said it was creamy.)
salt and pepper
sauteed spinach

Meatless Meals for Meat Eaters: Over 150 Delicious RecipesSauteed Spinach (adapted)

5 cups fresh baby spinach
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet, over medium heat, cook all ingredients together, stirring frequently, until spinach is just wilted.

Thanks to Miriam of Meatless Meals for Meat Eaters.

Now for the Recipe Box - I am still behind in enjoying all the recipes, but a few jumped out at me and I will share those with you.

 Another Winnie Special  - a filled chocolate cake.   I would like to live next door from Winnie with all her fabulous baked goods and more so, because of her friendly and warm spirit.  Get to know her.  You will like her.

 Chicken Stir Fry from one of my favorites, Fox in the Kitchen.  We would all, most likely, eat better with a fox in our kitchens.

 Stuffed Mushroom from my buddy, Louanne. I am always impressed with her presentation as well as her recipes.  Let's visit her kitchen.

 It is your turn now.  I can't wait to see what you have to share.  Linked to  My Bloggy Friends


  1. Love the features this week! Winnie's cake makes me drool every time I see it! Thank you for hosting, Chaya!

    1. Thanks for sharing at All my Bloggy Friends. I'm looking forward to seeing what you share this week! :)

  2. Thanks for hosting, Chaya. Good photo for being in the dark! Sauteed spinach is one of my favorite things ever.

  3. Thank you Chaya soooooooooooooo much, not only for featuring my cake, but also for such sweet and complimentary words - I'm blushing (and I'm already red-head LOL)

    And you too - Jaime!

    I'm trying to get spinach (which is quite difficult in the last few weeks), and once I do I'm planning to try this pasta. I'm sure we're gonna love it!

  4. The spinach alfredo is talking to me but I have to agree I wish Winnie lived next door instead of half way around the world... another fantastic dessert from her. The party is looking good. Thanks.

  5. Hi Chaya,

    Thank you for featuring my Chicken Stir Fry. I love your play on words.
    Your Recipe Box always attracts the best bloggers. I wish we all lived next door to each other. Could you imagine all the wonderful potluck parties we would have?


  6. Hi Chaya,
    Your spinach alfredo pasta sounds good. Most of the time I usually swap the butter for cooking oil when it comes to sauteing.
    I've just linked a quick bread. Thank you for hosting!

  7. We had pasta with spinach tonight too! But with a little bit of a lighter sauce.

  8. The features look delicious as so so many of the wonderful links this week. I like Miriam's recipes too, and your version of her Spinach Alfredo looks delicious. This week I've shared a vintage recipe! Thank you for hosting.

  9. it's been some time since i last linked up. I'm here today to link my pumpkin soup. Have a nice weekend, Chaya!

  10. Hi Chaya, I've just linked a lovely onion bread. Thank you for hosting, have a great weekend!

  11. Hello! I've been out of town and away from computers for a couple of weeks so I just saw that you've been posting some of my recipes! Thanks and I hope you've been enjoying the cookbook :) Happy holidays!!!!!
