I've stated a number of times how I like pasta and this pasta recipe is not all that hard to follow and the end product is incredible. Enjoy.


  • 1 Pkg.spaghetti or fettuccine (500 g.)

  • 1 Small bag fresh spinach leaves (284 g.)

  • 2 Each: red and yellow peppers

  • 1 can whole mushrooms (284 mL)

  • 1 Container cream cheese (250 g)

  • 1/2 Cup milk

  • 2 Tbsp. fresh basil (finely chopped)

  • 2 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese

Cook pasta in large saucepan according to pkg. directions, adding the spinach, peppers and mushrooms to the water for the last 3 min. of the pasta cooking time. Place pasta mixture in colander; drain.

Meanwhile, add cream cheese and milk to same saucepan; cook on low heat until cream cheese is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring frequently.

Place pasta in large bowl. Add cream cheese mixture; toss to coat. Top with basil and grated cheese just before serving.
