Tasty and easy Spinach Farfalle Recipe at home.

Spinach Farfalle recipe is one of my favorite. It combines the taste and indulgence of Italian cuisine with the health benefits of spinach. Whenever my kids insisted that their regular food was getting boring i would come up with this one. It never failed to enthuse them to come to the dinner table

Tips

The blanching of the spinach is important. If not done properly it will result in spinach that smells of of chlorophyll. That is not good. If you don’t know refer to this link for Palak Paneer recipe. It has blanching. Once blanched you can make the puree in a mixer.

The benefits of Spinach are many, Its loaded with lots of Iron and Vitamins like A and C to ensure that its protects your body in many ways. Its an excellent source of anti-oxidants and great for immunity and protection against lifestyle illnesses like High blood pressure etc. Its also touted to have anti-cancer properties.

I used Ghee for my preparation. You can use also use olive oil.
