garlic butter spaghetti with herbs

It's a miracle whenever I make something I've pinned off of Pinterest, but it's an even bigger miracle when it is something that actually turns out!

We made this dish a couple months back and absolutely fell in love with it.  It's cheap, it's easy, and it's tasty!  Doesn't get much better than that! :)  It's a great go to dish that doesn't take a lot of effort, which is great for us since we both work full time.  So give it a try! It won't disappoint!

Garlic Butter Spaghetti with Herbs

>> 1 lb. whole wheat spaghetti
>> 6 tablespoons butter + more for serving
>> 8 cloves garlic, minced
>> 1 large bunch basil, chopped
>> 1 large bunch baby spinach, chopped
>> 2 teaspoons salt
>> 1 teaspoon black pepper
>> Parmesan Cheese for topping

1.  Cook the spaghetti according to package directions.
2.  Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium low heat.  Add the minced garlic and saute for about five minutes until soft and fragrant.
3.  Chop the spinach and basil into bite sized pieces and add to the skillet.  Stir until your greens begin to wilt.
4.  Add the spaghetti to the skillet and season with salt and pepper.  Toss well until combined.  Let rest and top with additional butter and parmesan cheese.  ENJOY!  

Told ya it was easy :)
