Fusilli with Spinach, Labneh ‘Cream Cheese’, & Roasted Black Olives

This was amazing, delicious and to die for.  Labneh is beautiful, and I have actually realized, ever so versatile.  I got an idea to mix it with pasta and see what happens, and to our surprise and delight it was so smooth and beautiful, rich yet light – I can’t explain how easy to eat this was.  I added pre-cooked spinach and tossed in some black roasted olives, drizzled on some olive oil, and garnished it with freshly chopped coriander.  I then dusted on some homemade parmesan from my book . . .  The result, a perfect pasta dish that I will make again and again.

 

Serves around 3 large portions

METHOD

After your pasta has cooked and drained, place in a large saucepan and heat it up.  Add the labneh and stir it well, then add the spinach and salt.  Finally, add the milk and make sure the consistency of the sauce is rich and creamy.

Serve hot and garnish with coriander.  Enjoy !
