Spinach Corn Pasta

Story Time

Let me share how I came up with the idea of this recipe. When Jatin and I were living in Pune, India, we had a favorite cafe – CCD. Yes! Cafe Coffee Day. The main attraction to choose a home where we were living was this cafe nearby. We saw it and we were instantly sold. See, a lot can happen over a cup of coffee. 🙂

We used to go there a lot – weekdays, weekends, special occasions, get together with friends. And we always ordered this one sandwich which was so delicious. The bread was very soft and flavorful. The stuffing was creamy, and cheesy, with vibrant colors of spinach and corn. It was addictive! It was their Spinach and Corn Sandwich. And then we decided to make the same sandwich at home. We tried and loved the simplicity of the recipe that we created. Plus, it was healthy!

We started making it a lot. We even shared it with our neighbors and friends and they also loved it. A Lot! Everyone was shocked when we told them, there was no mayonnaise in it. That made them more curious about the creaminess of our sandwich. It was all achieved with milk. No Mayonnaise or heavy cream! One day we decided to explore more variations using these ingredients and since we love pasta, we decided to make Spinach Corn Pasta. That’s how we gave birth to this humble recipe.

A lot can happen over a cup of coffee! 😀

Hey. We have a YouTube video also for this recipe.

How to cook Pasta?

Pasta is easy to cook but if left unnoticed, you can even ruin it easily. They are attention seekers. 🙂 Cook it as per the packet instructions or follow the below-mentioned tips to cook it just right:

  1. Take a large saucepan to boil pasta. Small pans overcrowd the pasta and make them sticky and mushy.
  2. Add ONLY SALT in water to boil pasta. NO OIL is needed.
  3. Add pasta only when the water starts to boil.
  4. Keep stirring in between to prevent them from sticking with each other.
  5. Pasta takes around 10 – 12 minutes to cook. Keep an eye out, and take a bite of it to see if they are cooked. Boil only until they are just cooked. Then remove from the flame and drain off the water.

Is this recipe Vegan?

I am afraid not. This recipe is not plant-based or vegan. But you can customize it as per your preferences and taste. Substitute cow milk with plant-based milk like almond milk, soy milk, or oat milk.

Steps

Boil Pasta
  1. Fill a large saucepan with water, about 3/4th. Add around 1 Tbsp salt to it. Boil water.
  2. Add pasta and cook as per the packet instructions or until al dente. Keep stirring in between to avoid sticking.
  3. Do not overcook. It makes pasta mushy.
  4. Once cooked, drain off the water and set aside.
  5. I would recommend cooking pasta while sauce is on simmer to cook.
Prepare Sauce
  1. Heat a skillet and add butter to it. Let it melt on medium heat.
  2. Add chopped onion and garlic and sauté until fragrant and translucent, about a minute.
  3. Do not brown.
  4. Add whole wheat flour and stir until aromatic, about a minute. Do not brown.
  5. Pour 3 cups of milk into the skillet and stir continuously. Season with the spices and herbs (except basil leaves). Stir to mix everything well.
  6. The sauce would start to thicken.
  7. Add chopped spinach and corns. Mix well, cover, and cook. Allow the mixture to simmer gently until slightly thickened.
  8. Add more milk to adjust the consistency of sauce.
  9. Throw in cooked pasta, green capsicum, and mix well. Cover and let it cook for about 2 minutes to infuse all the flavors together. 
  10. Serve right away. Garnish with lemon zest, basil leaves, and grated cheddar cheese. Enjoy! You will love it.
