An Oldie-Goodie Favorite Dinner

For our first Valentine's Day together, David gave me this cookbook. Yes, a cookbook. But if you know David, you know how practical he is, so this shouldn't shock you. The best thing about the cookbook is that David took the time to go through and write little notes on the recipes. The second best thing about the cookbook is that everything in it is healthy and it includes nutritional information.

The first time I visited David in Texas, we made this together. It is still one of our favorite meals to cook and eat. And it's quick, too! Less than 15 minutes!

And in case you are wondering...the cookbook wasn't the only gift I got that Valentine's Day.

Fettuccine with Spinach and Feta

1 bag baby spinach
1 green onion, sliced
2/3 cup crumbled Feta
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. dried dill
a few grinds of fresh pepper
4 oz. fettuccine, uncooked

Cook the fettuccine without adding salt or oil/butter. During the last two minutes of cooking, add the spinach, plunging it down into the water until wilted. Drain this very, very well!

While the pasta cooks up, add everything else (except the spinach) to a large bowl and mix it up.

Add the spinach and pasta to the sauce and stir. This is best served hot or at room temperature.
