As you know, spinach is a very healthy plant, full of nutrients, so it is advisable to cook it and eat it as often as possible. It can be eaten in the cooked version, in different forms of fillings, or in the form of mash as we will do today, or raw in salads such as easy cold pasta salad recipe.

Just a Few Ingredients

For two people, I used 450 g of fresh spinach, but the same can be done with frozen spinach, no problem, it will be just as delicious.
