Don’t you just love, love, love the first cuts from your garden! Yesterday was my first cut of spinach and chives.
The first harvest of spinach was just enough to add a little color, nutrition and rich antioxidants to a simple pasta dish. I steamed the spinach in a colander set above the pasta while it boiled.
I love the beautiful color and shape of chives although I don’t know many ways to use them. I decided to experiment and threw in a couple handfuls while sautéing some garlic and other seasonings.
I mixed the steamed spinach with the sautéed chives and garlic and placed on top the pasta. The final toppers were parmesan cheese and pepper. A quick dish with good nutrition that we all enjoyed especially since we ate outside. The bounty of the season has begun!
