Spinach Pasta with Olives, Basil, Garlic, and Lime
A quick and easy Spinach Pasta with Olives, Basil, Garlic and Lime that is so very perfect for a quick meatless meal.
This fresh and simple green-themed Spinach Pasta with Olives, Basil, Garlic and Lime dish couldn’t be easier to make. A few minutes is all that is needed to have this flavor-filled dish ready. I’ve thrown it together for lunch in no time.
Lovely green fettuccine spinach pasta noodles were tossed with olive oil, olives, garlic, basil, a little butter, and lime zest, then finished off with a squeeze of bright lime juice for a simple, happy, light pasta dish. A little bit of chopping, and zesting, followed by some basic sautéeing is all that is required. Easy enough, right?
I’m thinking it would be mighty fine served as a chilled pasta too. Mighty fine, indeed. Make it ahead a day or two, chill it and have a tasty meal to pack and take for lunch.
Here’s a tasty tip: If you’re a big olive fan, you may want to go ahead and double the amount in the recipe. I’ve had a hankering for olives lately and this dish can definitely handle more if olives are your thing.
