Pasta with Spinach and Cheese
Cook penne in salted boiling water until al dente, 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, rinse and spin spinach dry. Peel garlic and shallot. Dice shallot and cut garlic into thin slices.
In a saucepan, sauté garlic in oil until golden. Add shallot and spinach and sauté until spinach has wilted. Deglaze with white wine and cream. Simmer over medium heat about 5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Drain pasta and toss with spinach sauce. Divide pasta among warmed plates and serve with a dollop of cottage cheese.
