This dish is very easy and is wonderful to serve on the side of some italian sausages or any type of meat in your italian meals.
box of bowtie pasta
3 or 4 cloves of garlic chopped
bag of baby spinach
4 or 5 white mushrooms
few tbl of olive oil (enough to coat all the pasta slightly)
Start off with boiling your water and adding a half a box of bowtie pasta (remember to add your salt in the boiling water.
In a sauce pan heat the oil until it's pretty hot (I'd say to cook this between med and med hi). Add your chopped garlic and let the oil become nice and garlicy and fragarant. Add the mushrooms (cook for a few seconds longer then spinach as spinach cooks really really fast) and then spinach to the oil and cook just until the spinach wilts. Add 1/4 tsp of the thyme and salt to taste (thyme has a dirty sort of taste, so don't add much, in the end this comes together nicely). Remove pan from heat and set aside.
Drain the pasta and put in a large bowl. Add the spinach and mushroom mix and stir so that all the pasta is nicely coated with the garlicy oil. Transfer to serving platter and top with parmesan cheese.
*note* depending on which type of parmesan you buy you can add it to the bowl with the hot pasta and melt it if you get the shredded parm. If you buy it in a powder form add it on top of the served dish.
