Excellent tasty recipe. I had to cook it a bit differently becaue I used Tofu Fettuccini. It only cooks for 3 minutes. I used my wok, stir fried the mushrooms and onions. When I added the fettuccini to the boiling water I added the spinach to the wok. Drained the pasta, added it and only 1 tablespoon of butter to the wok and it was ready.

I made this recipe using spelt udon noodles and adding the sauteed onion option and this made for a nice light lunch. I love the simplicity of this recipe! Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag Game.

So good, so easy. I made this for one of the ladies I cook for. They loved it. It was just a nice side to a grilled dinner. I served it with grilled chicken and parmesan stuffed baked tomatoes. A perfect dinner. What a nice simple recipe!
