Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    I was excited to make this as it seemed so easy, but I couldn’t get the sauce to work. Instead of melting to make a smooth creamy sauce, the feta kind of seized up, became rubbery, and created large clumps of spinach that couldn’t be distributed throughout the pasta. Not sure what I did wrong. I used a 1/2 cup of pasta water, too. Could it be the type of feta I used (block feta in brine), or did I heat it too long? The flavor was good, though. Will try again.

    Works well with roasted red capsicum in the place of spinach
