Much as we love a spinach salad, we firmly believe that the best vehicle for spinach is pasta. The green leaves wilt down and heat up in mere minutes, providing bright color, a smooth texture, and an abundance of nutrients that will truly level up your pasta game.  How does spinach improve your dish's nutritional value? It's an extremely nutrient-dense ingredient, meaning it's low in calories but high in beneficial nutrients, including iron, calcium, zinc, and vitamins A, C, K, and B9 (otherwise known as folate). And if all that isn't enough to make you see that spinach is a powerhouse, don't forget that this leafy green vegetable provides tons of fiber and antioxidants, too. Spinach is also an accessible ingredient—it's available frozen, fresh, and canned—so you can always keep some on hand. And you can easily use it in one of our spinach pasta recipes for dinner tonight.
