Cooking&Baking Challenge - Session 2 - Penne with potatoes and spinach

Penne with potatoes and spinach
(probably for four persons)
* Ingredients:

3 tomatoes
200 gr potatoes
4 spring onions
1 celery (we didn't use it)
300 gr fresh spinach or 200 gr frozen
A large handful of basil
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp butter
2 garlic cloves
200 gr penne pasta
salt, pepper
600 to 800 ml vegetable stock
100 gr parmesan cheese

* Wash the tomatoes and cut them in cubes. Wash, peel and slice the potatoes. Cut the spring onion in small slices. Wash carefully the spinach and cut it broadly. Leave it to drain in a sieve. Wash and cut the basil.

* Heat up the olive oil and butter, add the spring and potatoes slices. Cook them a bit. Add to it the tomatoes, the garlic and the raw pasta. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Slowly add the vegetable stock, leaving it to reduce until the pasta is done (it takes about 15min). Shortly before the end, add the spinach, basil and the grated parmesan. Season again to taste with salt and pepper.
It was a really lovely dish although a little too liquid and missing some spices. But never the less little N. liked it as much as we did.

Recipe from "Unser Kochbuch - Alternativen zu Fish und Fleisch" Alfred Biolek & Eckart Witzigmann.
