This may be the easiest one yet. I love getting ravioli, tortellini, or gnocchi and keeping them in my fridge or freezer for nights when I’m just not feeling it. Lately my favorite has been the cauliflower gnocchi from Trader Joe’s. Trader Joe’s should probably just sponsor me. Anyone who works at Trader Joe’s reading this right now? Please send me free food. I love you.

Rather than steaming my spinach I let the hot pasta do the work by placing the pasta directly on top of the spinach in my bowl. If you want your spinach slightly more wilted, add it to your boiling water for 30 seconds before draining the pasta.
