  4. Cook until soft.
  5. Put pasta into boiling water and bring back to the boil.
  6. Cook to your liking.
  7. Add dijon mustard and evaporated milk to the onion mix.
  8. Stir to combine and heat very gently until pasta is ready.
  9. If you like a'wetter' sauce add a small amount of the pasta cooking water to the onion/milk mixture.
  10. Place washed spinach leaves into a colander.
