Creamy Spinach and Mushroom Pasta

Today was supposed to be vegan day. But nothing inspiring jumped out of the fridge tonight so we had a veggie dish instead. N declared it a bit bland and samey towards the end but perfectly edible. Maybe it would have been nicer with blue cheese or some chilli. Will try those variations next time…

For 2 generous servings you need:
200g pasta
2 tomatoes, skinned and diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 bag baby leaf spinach
2 tbsp olive oil
6 tbsp mascapone
75ml white wine
125g sliced mushrooms

Cook the pasta. Meanwhile sautee the onions, garlic and mushrooms in the oil. After about 5 mins add the tomatoes, mascapone, ground pepper and wine. Simmer for a further 5 mins or so then add the spinach and wilt. Drain the pasta, toss through the sauce and top with parmesan. Perfect post ride fuel!
