one for the popeye fans! an easy, 'cheesy', wednesday night pasta dish - delish!

1/2 packet of wholewheat spaghetti

1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/4 of a large brown onion, diced
evoo for garnishing
salt and pepper to season

boil a pot of water, add the spaghetti. cook until al dente. whilst the spaghetti is cooking saute the onion in a small frying pan until softened and translucent. add the spinach and cook for 3 minutes. add the nutritional yeast, garlic powder, salt and pepper and cook for a further 3 minutes. transfer the mix to a jug and, using a bamix (or other hand blender), blitz the mix until relatively smooth, adding the non-dairy milk as you blend. return the spinach mix to the frying pan and heat through. drain the spaghetti, once cooked, and add it to the spinach sauce mix. toss the spaghetti through the spinach sauce. serve with a drizzle of good quality evoo and sprinkle of extra nutritional yeast flakes.
