Fusilli With Glorious Green Spinach Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by katew

Adapted from a 2006 issue of BBC Good Food - you may wish to serve this with a dollop of tomato pasta sauce like I do. If you think it may be to cloying just reduce the amount of mascarpone cheese or serve ir as a side.

Delicious. The perfect side to oven-baked chicken parmesan. Easy to make, too. I may try a mix of spinach and fresh basil next time. Thanks for this keeper.
