Spinach and Mushroom Pasta

Popeye was onto something with spinach, I've taken a leaf (sorry about the pun!) out of his book recently and fallen in love with it too. It is full of iron, rich in vitamin C and dietary fibre, a winner all round. This is a super quick meal that will only take about 15 minutes to throw together and it is ideal for a mid week fix.

Serves 2
200g Mushrooms, sliced
1tbsp Butter
2 Cloves garlic, crushed
200g Spaghetti pasta
200ml Double cream
1 Chicken stock cube
200g Spinach, frozen

Cook the pasta according to the instructions. Meanwhile heat a large frying pan over a medium heat, add the butter, just as the butter starts to foam, add the mushrooms. Fry until they are golden brown. Pour the cream into the pan along with the garlic and half a chicken stock cube, bring to the boil for 2 minutes. Add the frozen spinach to the pan, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes until the spinach is cooked.

Drain the pasta and add to your creamy spinach mixture, stir until it is coated with the creamy mixture. Serve immediately, I had leftover french bread so I made some Garlic Bread too.
