Meatless Monday Recipe that’s perfect for St. Patty’s Day!

Updated: Mar 10

I have been a vegetarian most of my life. Over fifteen years ago I did a 'Vegan Detox' for six weeks and that was a life game changer. I had no idea I was so sensitive to milk and eggs until I did the detox. I felt so much better, I never looked back and have remained plant based.

This is a vegetarian recipe, and child approved. My son at one year old would stand by my legs when I would blend the sauce and I would put a taste on his tongue. "Mower (more)", he'd say. Over and over and over!!! This picture is my Godson. He liked it a lot, too! I know it's hard to tell....


(1) box/bag of frozen chopped spinach

1/3 C milk

1/2C grated Parmesan (I personally think it NEEDS a blend of Parmesan and Romano, but it's up to you.)

1 t. Kosher salt

1/4 stick of butter

I box of pasta

  1. Cook spinach in the microwave according the instructions. During this time, start boiling your water for the pasta.

  2. Place cooked hot spinach WITH any liquid that was produced while cooking in a blender.

  3. Add milk, cheese, and salt and blend on high. Stop and scrape sides once or twice, and keep blending until it's smooth and a uniform color. You should be ready to boil your pasta.

  4. After pasta is finished, drain and place back in pot with butter. Mix. Once butter is melted, add sauce and stir until everything is BRIGHT GREEN!

  5. Serve with extra cheese if you'd Iike!

TIPS- if you find your sauce is thicker than pasta sauce, add a bit more milk and blend again until it's thick but pourable.

You will definitely want to taste. You'll know if it's good! If you only use Parm, you may need another 1/2 t of salt.

Butter on the pasta helps the sauce stick and gives the dish more richness, but it's not necessary or you can use margarine or whatever else you use in your home.

My son is now seventeen and this is still his favorite meal!

This can be made vegan, use an unsweetened 'milk' of your choice a vegan Parm. I usually need 1 1/2t of salt, and you can use any plant based butter.

I now practice the pause AND set boundaries!!

It took a lot of practice. A LOT. You are asked a question, and you don't know how you feel so you say- let me think about it and I'll get back to you. I realized I now knew what to say, but I when I
