Mascarpone Spinach Pasta
I'm guessing quite a few people starting thinking about comfort food when April 15 comes every year, and for everyone who can use a little culinary diversion on Tax Day Eve, I'm recommending this delicious-sounding and comforting Mascarpone Spinach Pasta from Macheesmo for this week's Meatless Monday pick. If you're not familiar with mascarpone, it's a creamy Italian cheese, and one thing I loved about this easy pasta dish is the way the cheese melts and forms a creamy sauce that goes perfectly with the wilted spinach. Nick recommends topping it with toasted hazelnuts, but I have to say that I think pine nuts would also be heavenly here.
