How to make Cream Cheese Pasta

This is super simple and so delicious.

Cook pasta according to the package directions in seasoned/salted water.  With about 5 minutes left, add the green beans and cook.  Drain, but reserve about 1/2 cup of the cooking water.

Meanwhile, heat oil over medium heat in a large sauce pan.  Add garlic and saute for about 3 minutes.  Add cream cheese, juice from the lemon, spinach, and cooking water.  Heat until creamy. Add the pasta, parsley, and salt and pepper.

Garnish with Parmesan cheese and diced tomato.  Enjoy!
