Spinach and Brussel Sprout Pasta

February 17, 2019

Author Notes: I made this Spinach and Brussel Sprout pasta the other day and got a little more creative with dressing up the pasta. While this dish is great as a vegetarian dish, I added a salmon fillet the other night and it gave the dish a nice, rich compliment.
