    This sauce has 3 ingredients and will be ready in the time it takes to cook the pasta. I like Aloutte cream/boursin cheese with this.

      SPECTACULAR! My new favorite quick meal! Unbelievable, tastes like I've spent a long careful time preparing. I only had lite cream cheese with no flavoring, so I heated some garlic, oregano and basil in the oil first. Then I added the spinach and when it was wilted, the cream cheese. I was also liberal with salt and pepper and finally, I added something extra: some feta cheese which I melted down right before I finished cooking it. Really unbelievable! EDITED TO ADD: After making it a few more times I found that adding about 2tsbp of water after adding the cream cheese helps the consistency, makes it less goopy and easier to spread and coat pasta

      I initially found this a bit bland (perhaps it was my brand of cream cheese?) But after adding in a ton of spices and parmesan it really came to life
