Penne with Grape Tomatoes and Spinach,
For this week, Peggy has chosen a delectable and simple dish, Penne with Grape tomatoes and Spinach. This is representative, in my opinion, of Ellie Krieger dishes, simple, healthy and yummy. It is a light dish despite it being pasta. The tomatoes and Parmesan gave it strength in flavor. Since I could not use garlic, one of the main components in the dish, I added an onion, chopped and cooked. I added the tomatoes to the onions and just kept adding.
Since we love spinach, I tend to throw into many dishes but this one called for it. You can imagine how this sold the recipe before I even made it. This would make a great veggie dish without the pasta and with additional vegetables.
As usual as for years, this is another Ellie dish, this family likes a lot. It feels good to be cooking her recipes on a regular basis. It brings back happy memories of the weekly cheers that went up, in our house, when we had yet another successful Ellie Krieger speciality or just a simple one like the above.
