1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon minced garlic

3/4 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained well

1 cup reduced-sodium chicken or beef broth (vegetable broth can be substituted)

8 ounces whole-wheat spaghetti (about 4 cups cooked and drained)

Freshly ground pepper to taste

  • Begin heating olive oil in a large nonstick skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat. Stir in the garlic and sauté for a minute.
  • Stir in the spinach and continue to sauté for about 1 minute. Pour in the broth and continue to cook the spinach mixture, stirring frequently, until broth is almost evaporated (2-3 minutes).
