Broccolini Spinach and Garlic Pasta by Picky Palate

I always love quick and simple dinner ideas. Those of you who have been following my blog know that by now :)

This dinner is great for summer because there’s no turning the oven on, just stovetop cookin’. With a few simple ingredients, and about 30 minutes, you’ve got a pasta that is full of great flavor. This pasta is great topped with chicken too.

Enjoy and happy summer!
