Pasta sauce with spinach juice

Pasta sauce with spinach juice!

Spinach is good for you and pricey so I don't like to waste it. If you have reserved the juice the following sauce is tasty with pasta.

1 white onion finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic crushed or finely chopped
1 pepper - red is good for a cheery colour
2-3 slices of parma ham or salami (leave out if making for veggies)
Dessert spoon of creme fraiche

Saute the onion and garlic until onion is transulcent.
Add the pepper and cook for 4-5 minutes.
Chop up the meat and add in - stir and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add in the spinach juices, mix and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add the creme fraiche, mix and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Cook your pasta as per the instructions until al dente. Remove from the heat, add in the sauce and stir. The sauce should be thin, not gloopy, and coat the pasta. I like to top it off with some parmesan and some cherry tomatoes.
