Grandma LOVES spinach pasta. This recipe was designed to make quick, but good, spinach pasta using a Kitchen Aid, and will make a total of about eight servings. We’ve also substituted Collard Greens and Kale with excellent results. Since I created this recipe though, I found a great source of spinach pasta at Amazon.com. CLICK HERE to see what I buy these days. Even Grandpa takes a quality shortcut now and then.
