Spaghetti with spinach, snack tomatoes, walnuts…

Standard

Hi there,

And again I had spinach on my dish:)
This time with snack tomatoes and mozzarella.
I like this dish because it has very attractive colours, it is super simple and quick, costs little money and is very healthy.

Spinach is healthy. It contains lots of vitamins and minerals.

Do you remember the cartoon character “Popeye the Sailor Man”? 🙂 After consuming spinach he was physically stronger:)

As a child I didn’t like spinach. I think most kids hate it:)

I am older now and more aware of my culinary preferences/tastes. In fact during these 20 years I start to like spinach, especially spinach a la crème!
