Spaghetti with Tapenade, Spinach, Goat Cheese, and Pine Nuts

This is my favorite dinner-in-a-flash. Luxurious tapenades from The Olive Press instantly transform plain pasta into a sophisticated, satisfying vegetarian dinner. Try adding grilled chicken or Italian sausage for an even heartier dish.

Made with these products from The Olive Press:

Ingredients
  • 4 tbsp your favorite tapenade from The Olive Press
  • 1 lb spaghetti
  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves
  • 2 oz. crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions
  1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions in salted boiling water. Drain and return to pot.
  2. While spaghetti cooks, toast pine nuts in a small skillet over medium-high heat until fragrant (about 1 minute).
  3. Toss hot pasta with tapenade, spinach, goat cheese, pine nuts, red pepper flakes and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Serve hot.

Serves: 4
