FOODIE NIGHT-2/27/2010

Our Foodie night was FABULOUS! Thanks Amelia and Paul for hosting! Your home is DARLING! We had amazing recipes last night: Here is the recipe for my whole wheat pasta:

Pasta with spinach, tomatoes, and asiago

1 lb whole wheat pasta (I prefer the shells, fusillis, or penne, but whatever you have will work)
1/4 cup olive oil
2-3 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
1 (9 oz) bag spinach, roughly chopped
8 oz (1/2 pint) cherry tomatoes (or more to taste)
1 cup grated asiago cheese (or more to taste)
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese (or more to taste)
1 tsp salt (or more to taste)
3/4 tsp freshly ground pepper (or more to taste)
Bring pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente. (follow directions on the package) Drain but SAVE 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid. Warm up the olive oil in a saucepan on med heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Add spinach and tomatoes and cook til wilted. (about 2-4 min) Add pasta and toss. Add cheeses, salt, pepper, and pasta liquid and stir. Serve immediately.
This pasta is great leftover! We make it all of the time! Enjoy!
