Creamy Parmesan and Spinach Pasta

Bow tie pasta with a spinach and a creamy Parmesan sauce?  Yes please!  I've actually been making this dish for years and it's a hit each and every time.  The next time you want to indulge, try it.  You'll love it...I promise!

 2 cups uncooked bow tie pasta
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, diced
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup milk (I used 1%)
2 cups spinach, chopped
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 
salt and black pepper, to taste

Cook pasta as directed
 Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat
Add garlic and onion, and cook, stirring frequently, until onions become soft, about 2-3 minutes
Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute
Gradually whisk in milk, and cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 4 minutes
Add spinach and cook until wilted, about 2-3 minutes
Stir in Parmesan until melted
Add pasta and gently toss to combine
season with salt and pepper

Can't Stop

Forever 21 sweater (so old), Rag & Bone shorts, Ash sneakers, Chanel bag
Please accept my apologies in advance, because I can't stop and won't stop wearing these shorts or these slip on sneakers.  I love my leopard print pair so much that I couldn't resist getting them in black leather.  After wearing this outfit all day Sunday, I quickly realized that cut offs and a slouchy sweater is my new favorite go-to uniform.

Happy Monday everyone!  Sorry for being MIA for most of last week.  I flew to NY with my daughter and husband and took the opportunity to disconnect from the Internet and all of my electronic gadgets.  Let's be honest, all of us need to do that from time to time.  I'm back and ready to tackle the crazy week ahead of me.  I hope everyone had a great weekend!

P.S. - I'm totally obsessed with my new slouchy cargo pants.
