This ain’t your grandma’s old-fashioned spaghetti. While grandma’s traditional pasta is always delicious, sometimes we want to try something new. Our California Dreaming Pasta Toss is one of the best pasta recipes you’ve never heard about. The butter, walnuts, and spinach give it a fresh flavor that will leave you feeling satisfied. Trust us, once you try it, you’ll be dreaming about making it again and again.
What You’ll Need
- 12 ounces spaghetti
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
- 1 cup walnut halves
- 3 cups fresh spinach
- 1/4 cup sliced sundried tomatoes
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- Shaved Parmesan cheese for garnish
What to Do
- Cook pasta according to package directions; drain well.
- Meanwhile, in a deep skillet over medium heat, melt butter; stir in walnuts and cook 3 to 5 minutes or until butter begins to turn brown. Add spinach, sundried tomatoes, salt, and pepper and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until spinach is wilted.
- Place pasta on a serving platter. Spoon walnut mixture over pasta and toss well. Top with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
