Meatless Monday Bowtied Spinach

We love pasta!!! I found this recipe in my recipe box. You can go without the bacon or prosciutto in this dish to make it meatless. Enjoy this yummy and eazy peazy recipe for today’s meatless Monday.

1 Lb. Farfalle pasta (bowtie pasta)

Salt and pepper

Grated Parmesan cheese ( as much as you want)

 Lets Make It! Drop the raisins carefully into the boiling water, when they’ve plumped up scoop them out with a slotted spoon. Place on a tea towel ( or paper towel) lined plate to drain.  Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat and add garlic, saute’, until soft (do not brown) add spinach and stir, cooking until wilted.
