I’m really beginning to like spinach and having a couple of bags of frozen spinach in the freezer is fantastic, especially when I haven’t had a chance to do any real shopping, like this week.

There’s a lot of different pasta sauces that you can make without using meat or fish and this one is incredibly tasty.

    Val is a big fan of having frozen spinach in the freezer I reckon I’ll be trying out this recipe later in the week as part of Cooking for Val for her birthday week 🙂 . Generally don’t put it with tomato sauce more with cream
