This is a quick and delicious pasta recipe I love. It's got a simple, silky, creamy sauce made with mascarpone cheese, cream, garlic, nutmeg and Parmesan (and butter)... Yes, yes, I know what some of you are thinking... but those ingredients indeed what make this dish so incredibly scrumptious.
If it makes you feel any better, there's also spinach... quite a lot of spinach here which is very good for us. It's very low in calories yet very high in vitamins and loaded with other nutrients, like omega-3 fatty acids and an excellent source of iron, as I've been told. Just think of Popeye!
I also read somewhere, I may made this up, I cannot remember... Cheese supplies a great deal of protein and calcium. So, I think this pasta is actually health food. Please don't take my words for it. However, you can certainly trust me when I tell you: it's delicious...
