spaghetti with spinach and garlic
      I like the combination of pasta and spinach always, like in this recipe. It goes well with each other. So when I saw this recipe in the cookbook I borrowed from library, I loved the simplicity of the recipe and sounded healthy too. So made it last week for my lunch. It was so filling and had a hearty meal. Make it for your kid, they would love it too. The flavour burst of garlic and the tanginess lemon gives, yummy!
