DIRECTIONS

  • Remove any tough stems from the fresh spinach.
  • In large frying pan, melt butter over low heat.
  • Add green onions and garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add spinach and salt and stir until wilted.
  • Simmer until liquid evaporates from spinach, about 5 minutes.
  • In large pot of boiling water, cook linguini according to package directions.
  • Reserve 1 cup of pasta water.
  • Drain linguini and toss with 3/4 cup of pasta water, spinach mixture, cream cheese, parsley, and ground pepper.
  • If sauce seems too thick, add the rest of the reserved pasta water, otherwise you can throw out the remaining 1/4 cup pasta water.
  • Salt to taste.
