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!
