Creamy Garlic and Spinach Pasta

(Serves 4 to 6)
Creamy Garlic and Spinach Pasta
This is a rich and creamy Ligurian pasta dish packed with the flavor of garlic.
Recipes from Liguria are simple and are typically vegetarian rather than rich in meat. 
Spinach and Swiss Chard are commonly added to pasta and also vegetable pies, such
as Torta Pasqualina. 
Ingredients:

1 pound tagliolini or other string or ribbon pasta
4 tablespoons butter
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
8-10 ounces fresh spinach, coarsely chopped
Salt and pepper
Pinch of freshly ground nutmeg
2 cups heavy cream
Grated Parmesan cheese to serve

Directions:

Cook the pasta in boiling salted water for 2 minutes less than the
recommended time.

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the garlic and
sauté for 1 minute.  Add the spinach in batches, turning it in the skillet, until it
wilts completely.  Season the spinach with salt and pepper; add the nutmeg.
Add the cream; cook the mixture for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Drain the pasta and add it to the skillet.  Gently toss the pasta with the sauce;
cook for 2 minutes.  Check the seasoning; add more salt and pepper, if
necessary.  Transfer to a serving bowl.  Serve the pasta with the grated
Parmesan cheese sprinkled over the top.
