Spinach, Tomato, and Pine Nut Fettuccine

Total Time

This is an old favorite that my sister and I have been making for years! The simple, subtle flavors really allow fresh spring and summer produce to shine, making for a nice light alternative to heavily sauced pasta. You can really be creative here with the greens...try arugula, or chard, or even collards! The original recipe doesn't call for salt or pepper so feel free to leave them out, but I think it really adds a nice something. Enjoy!


  1. Cook Fettuccini according to package directions.
  2. Heat oil in skillet. Add garlic and pine nuts. Saute for one or two minutes until pine nuts are lightly browned. Stir in spinach. Cook until spinach is wilted. Add tomatoes and cook until they are warm.
  3. Spoon spinach mixture over the fettuccini and top with parmesan cheese.

Impeccable! The fresh clean flavors really shine in this lovely meal, we also really enjoyed that the tomatoes were just warmed without being fully cooked. Made as written using roasted garlic and the fresh cracked pepper option, this recipe is a true keeper. Thanks for the post.
