Spinach Feta Pasta

Remember that old Rice Krispies Treats commercial where the mom is in the kitchen reading while the family waits on the treats, thinking she is slaving away. (If not, watch it right now!) I loved this commercial when I was a kid and still make jokes about making Rice Krispies Treats when I’m covered in flour. So, what in the world, you are wondering, does that have to do with Spinach Feta Pasta? Well, this pasta is just as easy to make as Rice Krispies Treats. The difference is that not everyone knows it, so you can fool your spouse, or whomever, into thinking you slaved away in the hot kitchen, when really you barely did anything more than boil water.

So, pick up a book, head to the kitchen, and make this for dinner if you really want to impress someone (even if just yourself) but can’t be bothered to make homemade lobster ravioli. (recipe coming soon)
