– keep the water boiling and add your pasta
– meanwhile heat olive oil in a pan over low-medium heat and add sliced garlic and red pepper flakes stirring occasionally making sure it doesn’t burn
– to make the sauce add the blanched spinach and basil, sautéed garlic and olive oil, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice and good amount of salt+pepper
