Spaghetti tossed in a spinach and cheese sauce with colourful vegetables makes a delightful recipe. The beautiful green colour and good coating quality of the sauce makes it useful when serving along with pasta for a lunch or dinner. The cheese spread blends beautifully to give a thick and creamy sauce. To retain the fresh green colour of spinach, blanch the spinach and refresh quickly in ice-cold water. You may add a pinch of soda bi-carb to the water in which spinach is to be boiled. This also helps to retain the green colour of spinach.
