Spinach & Garlic Scapes Pasta

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by CountryLady

Scapes are much milder than garlic & make a very tasty sauce to accompany your choice of pasta. The cooking time is for the pasta. Edit on July 17: I made this for the first time last night & found the garlic flavour overpowering! C.L.

Wow! This was delicious. I did not find the garlic flavor overpowering at all. I used whole wheat spaghetti for an even healthier treat. I just wish that garlic scapes were available all year round, because where I live you can only find them at the farmers market during the summer. Thank you for helping me utilize a new ingredient in such a flavorful way.
