Wait, Spinach and Broccoli What?
First, let’s get over the shocking fact that I was in the kitchen AND going rogue cooking without a recipe. (No, the fire alarm never sounded either.) This recipe was the result of a dinner needed fast with items I had in the pantry and freezer.
Let’s get down to brass tacks:
Spinach and Broccoli Alfredo
1 jar Newman’s Own Alfredo Pasta Sauce (any brand will do)
1 to 1 1/2 cup chopped frozen spinach
1 to 1 1/2 cup frozen broccoli florets
*Measure the vegetables depending on how much you’d like in your sauce.
1/4 c. shredded parmesan cheese, extra for garnish
1. Boil water for cooking the noodles while you begin prepping vegetables for the sauce. Gather the vegetables and microwave for about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on high to soften. Then, put the vegetables in a food processor or blender until finely puréed.
2. Add noodles when water comes to a boil and cook until al dente. While noodles cook, stir in your puréed vegetables to the alfredo sauce in a separate pot on medium heat until sauce is heated through (about 5-7 minutes).
4. Once pasta is cooked, strain in colander. Serve with vegetable alfredo sauce, garnish with shredded parmesan cheese, and enjoy!
