“Goes extremely well with slow roasted cherry tomatoes as shown in the picture, though it is already delicious by itself. If you fancy the tomatoes simply cut them in half, season with garlic slices, salt, pepper, thyme and olive oil and roast them in the oven at 120C for 1h30m for the best cherry tomatoes you ever had.”

Ingredients

Servings:-8+
500 g pasta
500 g spinach
200 g Gorgonzola cheese
200 g asparagus
100 g olives
30 g basil
8 cloves garlic
limes
50 g unsalted butter
4 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
chili flakes (optional)
½ tsp pickled lemon (optional)
  • Step 1/5

    Prep all ingredients, cut olives into small pieces, pick and slice basil leaves, zest and juice both lemons, cut asparagus in small pieces, slice garlic, wash spinach and break gorgonzola into small pieces. Boil around 2l of water with a bit of salt and a drizzle of olive oil to cook your pasta in.

  • Step 2/5

    • 500 g pasta

    Put your pasta in the boiling water and leave it for 8-10 minutes. Remove it 1-2 minutes before you think its done.

  • Step 3/5

    • 500 g spinach
    • 100 g olives
    • 8 cloves garlic
    • limes
    • 4 tbsp olive oil

    Meanwhile, In a large pan, heat a bit of olive oil on medium heat and fry your garlic for just a minute. Add in sliced olives and lemon zest and mix well for another minute and start adding the spinach tk the mix. Add a handful at a time, once its wilted, add more until all spinach is wilted.

  • Step 4/5

    • 200 g Gorgonzola cheese
    • 200 g asparagus
    • 30 g basil

    Your pasta will be done at about the same time as the spinach is wilted. Get 1 1/2 cup of water from the pasta pan and mix it in with the spinach, drain the rest of the water, and pour pasta into the other pan to finish cooking. Add in to the pan the asparagus, lemon juice, basil and gorgonzola, mix well and cook it for a couple minutes.

  • Step 5/5

    • 50 g unsalted butter
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • chili flakes (optional)
    • ½ tsp pickled lemon (optional)

    Turn the heat off, add in the chili flakes, salt and pepper to taste, I highly recommend a tsp of pickled lemon which will bring up the flavour, and the unsalted butter. Mix intensively while the butter melts to emulsify your pasta and make it creamier. Serve and enjoy!
