How to make Linguine with spinach and sun-dried tomato cream sauce
Step 1: Following the package directions, cook the linguine. Drain when done and set aside.
Step 2: In a large skillet, heat tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Once hot, add the chopped sun-dried tomatoes and minced garlic. Cook while stirring constantly for about 30 seconds over medium heat.
Step 3: Next, pour in the half-and-half and add the paprika and 1/4 tsp salt. Bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling, decrease the heat to a simmer.
Step 4: Sprinkle with half a c of the shredded Parmesan cheese and stir for 30 seconds or so until the cheese has melted. Slowly add extra cheese if the sauce ends up too thin. Constantly stir for a few minutes. Or more half-and-half if the sauce is too thick.
Step 5: Fold in the spinach and cook while stirring for another minute over medium heat until the spinach has wilted. Then, toss in the cooked and drained linguine.
Step 6: If needed, season with more salt. Before serving, garnish with some finely chopped fresh basil leaves. Enjoy!
