Something Warm on a Sick Day

Being sick is the worst.  All you can do is sit on the couch or lay in bed.  So that’s what I’ve been doing for the past two days.  I wish I could say I was doing something constructive with this “time off” but all I’ve been able to manage is sleeping, watching bad television, and eating chicken soup (thanks Sam!)  But when I’m back up and running, I’m going to make something warm and homey, just like this dish.  It’s another one of my go-tos, especially since it’s made with my simple pasta sauce that I save for just these times.

Pasta with Artichokes and Spinach

15 oz. can of quartered artichoke hearts
4 handfuls of spinach
3 oz. mozzarella cheese
grated parmesan
½ lb. spaghetti

Prepare the simple pasta sauce or start with your own.  Cook the spaghetti.  Add artichokes and stir.  Add the spinach and cook for another 3 minutes until it is cooked down.  Add the spaghetti to the sauce and combine.  Add the mozzarella.  Serve with grated parmesan and ground pepper to taste.
