Test Kitchen Tip

The heat of the hot cooked pasta is enough to wilt the fresh spinach.


Cook pasta in a pot of boiling salted water according to package directions; reserve 1/4 cup pasta water, then drain.

Whisk together cream, Parmesan, butter, and zest in a large bowl; season with salt, black pepper, and pepper flakes, then add spinach.

Add pasta and reserved pasta water to bowl, tossing until spinach wilts. Garnish servings with walnuts.
