Spinach-tomato farfalle with pine nuts

Hey all! I hope you are doing well. It has been some time since my last post, as I somehow didn’t cook things which would have been worth posting. But I am trying many new dishes right now and will be hopefully able to update my blog more regular.
The recipe today is very quick to make and comes in handy if you don’t have a lot of time to cook. Spinach, tomatoes and pine nuts are a great and healthy combination, so enjoy! Wishing you all a wonderful day!!


- 1 packet farfalle pasta
- about 1 lb fresh spinach, washed and dried
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 3 cups strained tomatoes
- 1 Tbsp. Olive oil
- ¼ cup pine nuts
- 2 Tbsp. Mascarpone
- ½ cup water
- Coarse sea salt to taste
- Black pepper to taste


Boil pasta according to packet directions and drain.
In the mean time toast pine nuts in a skillet until golden-brown and set aside. Heat olive oil in a large pan and add onions. Fry until translucent, then add garlic and fry for 2-3 more minutes. Add strained tomatoes and water. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 5-10 minutes. Add mascarpone, salt and black pepper. Mix well and cook for couple more minutes. Add spinach and wait until wilted. Add pine nuts, mix and serve with some freshly ground parmesan.
