Final Friday Foodstuffs!

Yes Dear Reader, it is the last Friday of the month and here is another recipe from YAMs OnePot1der!

Cheese and Spinach Pasta.
Use whatever pasta variety you wish.  This is size 10 penne.  Cook it as per usual instruction.

Whilst it is draining, return the pot to the heat and drop in a teaspoon of butter and saute one tomato per person (chopped) then add a dessertspoon of fine flour to make a roux.^

Now add a cup of milk and thin further with water as required to the consistency you prefer. Add the spinach quantity of your own preference (YAM likes a LOT of spinach!) and  a tablespoon of grated cheese per person.  when it is fully incorporated, add back the pasta and blend well.  

Serve topped with a few more gratings of cheese.

Here I used the locally made 'cheddar' which is actually more like the Kraft processed stuff - very salty, so no need to add extra seasoning.  Just some fresh cracked pepper to finish it off.

^increase this quantity according to the amount of pasta to be covered.  I cook on the basis of two people - saves me having to cook twice in a day!  

This dish is quite pleasant once chilled also.  Keeping the sauce minimal and on the thinner side is the trick to having it be more salad-like than the standard fondue variations that we are used to!
