Pasta with Spinach, mascarpone and hazelnuts


What could be better on Meatless Monday than a big bowl of pasta? The toasted hazelnuts really make this dish so don’t leave them out.

8 oz pasta
8 oz mascarpone cheese
Juice of one lemon
2 bunches of spinach
1/2 c toasted hazelnuts chopped
Red pepper flakes

Cook pasta according to package.

In a 12 inch skillet combine the rest of the ingredients except nuts. Cook over low heat, stir in pasta and cook until cheese is melted and spinach is wilted.

Serve topped with hazelnuts and a couple grinds of red pepper flakes.

Serves 4.
