DIRECTIONS

  • Cook penne pasta according to package directions.
  • As pasta is cooking, toast pine nuts lightly in a small skillet over medium-low heat, stirring frequently and keeping a close eye on them to prevent burning.
  • Remove pine nuts from heat when lightly browned, after about 1-2 minutes.
  • Set aside pine nuts.
  • Drain cooked pasta and set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in a large, deep skillet or wok.
  • Add garlic and saute over medium heat for about 30 seconds, being careful not to let garlic brown.
  • Stir in cooked pasta.
  • Stir in feta and Parmesan cheese and cook for a 2-3 minutes, until feta cheese just starts to melt and pasta and cheese is thoroughly heated through.
  • Stir in spinach and continue to heat until spinach barely starts to wilt.
  • Take pasta off heat and stir in the toasted pine nuts.
  • Transfer to serving dish and serve.
