DIRECTIONS

  • Boil pasta according to package directions but only till its almost done.
  • Wash and clean the spinach and steam with a little water for 4 minutes in the microwave.
  • Once it is steamed, blenderize it with the same water to get a spinach paste which is kind of watery
  • In a large non stick skillet, heat oil.
  • When oil gets hot, add the chopped garlic.
  • When the garlic is slightly browned add the onions and stir fry till the onions turn brown.
  • Add the tofu and stir fry till the tofu changes color a bit and looks slightly as if it has been fried.
  • At this point add the red pepper flakes/powder and stir. Immediately add the the spinach paste
  • Let it simmer.
  • Add salt.
  • When the water from the spinach reduces add the semi cooked pasta and let it cook completely. If you think more water is needed add that.
  • I don't add cheese, but can also do the last step in the oven with mozzarella on top.
  • I like this hot and cold--tastes good every way.
