Blue & Green(s) Pasta Sauce
Sometimes I just want a big ole' plate of pasta and cream sauce. I never indulge in this regularly, so when I do decide to break down to temptation, I don't beat myself up over it. Especially when I am making the cream sauce myself and adding it to sauteed power greens and whole wheat noodles!
- Whole wheat noodles (as many or few as you like, I usually just dump them in)
- 2 cups of regular or light cream
- 1 cup of blue cheese crumbles (or more if you want it more blue-ey)
- 5 cups power greens (or spinach, broccoli, zucchini...really whatever you like).
Before I made my sauce I boiled my noodles and sautéed 5 cups of power greens in a tablespoon of olive oil. I set both aside for later and got down to business with my cream sauce. First, I put two cups of cream in a pan over medium-high heat. I kept a close eye on it and stirred it often, I didn't want that little baby to burn.
Once the cream started to bubble, it was time to keep stirring and add in the blue cheese chunks.
I tossed in my one cup of cheese chunks and stirred like a mad woman to make sure it evenly distributed throughout the whole pan.
Once good and mixed, I gave it a taste. So far, so great! I added in my greens and continued to mix them right in.
With my sauce complete, I made a nice little bed of noodles and topped it off with my Blue/green sauce.
I had already whipped together a quick salad and was ready to indulge myself as well as my TH in some down home Italian style cooking! So creamy and delicious!! With the large amount of noodles I made, I was able to add them to the sauce and mix them in to have some ready to go left overs for the next day. Now that is what I am talking about!
