Annie’s Homegrown with Spinach & Garlic

Nothing is easier than bringing out a box of Annie’s Homegrown Shells & Cheddar for a quick warm meal for kids.

With this adaptation you can also entice children to eat some healthy vegetables. You most likely won’t even need images of Popeye to help them eat the spinach!

INGREDIENTS
Annie’s Regular Shells & Cheddar
One 10-oz package frozen spinach (or fresh)
2 tsp olive oil
2-3 cloves of garlic, sliced thin
Freshly grated parmesan cheese
Ground black pepper

While Annie’s shells are cooking, prepare frozen spinach according to package directions*. When the spinach is approximately half-done, clear a small area in the pan where it’s cooking and add the olive oil; saute the chopped garlic in the oil, then stir spinach and garlic/oil together.

After you’ve added the cheese/milk/butter to the shells, toss with the spinach and garlic mixture. Top with freshly grated parmesan cheese and freshly ground pepper, to taste.
*If using fresh spinach, wash carefully, then saute in olive oil and garlic.
