Spinach and Penne

Last week, I bought a big bag of spinach leaves to make a salad for our Branch Christmas Party.  I mean Sam's Club big.  I used about half of it for the salad and wondered what I would do with the other half.  Tuesday night came around and I had nothing planned for dinner.  I hate when that happens.  So, I scoured the pantry and fridge and came up with this concoction.  I loved it!  Even my 3 year-old liked it.  It was a tasty dinner that was easy and healthy.  I love when that happens.

1/2  box whole wheat penne pasta
1 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbs. butter
4 cups fresh spinach
3 cloves garlic
salt and pepper
garlic salt
Parmesan cheese

Make pasta according to directions on box.  In a skillet, melt butter and olive oil over medium heat.  Add garlic and cook for about 2 minutes.  Add spinach and seasonings.  Cook until spinach welts.  Add pasta to skillet and stir.  Sprinkle with cheese and serve.

Yum! I wanna try this tomorrow night! Do you have any left over spinach you won't be using? I'll take 4 cups off your hands if not.
