Easiest Weeknight Dinner Ever

A filling, hot, GOOD Dinner in 20 minutes? Are you kidding? Nope! Here it is!

Capellini Florentine Balsamico

One Half Package Capellini (Angel Hair) Pasta
One Package Frozen Creamed Spinach
Grated Parmesan / Romano Cheese (1/4 Cup-ish)
Aged Balsamic Vinegar, to Drizzle. (REALLY good quality is important here. Thick, real aged stuff. The "Glaze" sold in supermarkets CAN be substituted in a pinch, but if you don't have the real stuff, I'd skip it. Liquidy Salad Vinegar just won't work here. I use 18 year Aged from Santa Fe Olive Oil Company.)

Prepare Spinach to package directions. Meanwhile, boil water and cook Capellini. (6 minutes or less!)
Drain pasta well.
In a medium-sized bowl, toss drained pasta with Grated Cheese until well mixed.
Add Hot Creamed Spinach, and mix until all pasta is well coated.

Divide into serving bowls and drizzle with Balsamic Vinegar.


(Serve with a quick Caesar Salad, and if you had time to plan, some hot Garlic Knots or Rolls.)
