Oh this one is good, we love it, kids love it! I love it because it’s just chuck in a pot and then a few minutes later, serve! My husband loves it because, less dishes! (And I am the dishes Queen!) And kids love it because you know, pasta.

  6. Pour the pasta straight into the pot, mix everything around really well
  7. Bring to a boil, once boiling, add your spinach and set a timer for (roughly) 12 minutes, keep the lid off and stir occasionally, add more water if you have too
