Green Spaghetti

It was a regular weeknight and I couldn't decide what to make. My girls aren't fans of regular red-sauce spaghetti (or at least the oldest claims so now). I recalled a time I was at a social gathering and tasted the most delicious green spaghetti. So I decided to invent my own. This is what I came up with:

In a frying pan, saute in coconut oil:
1/2 sliced onion
2-3 handfuls of fresh spinach
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced

In a blender
Let above ingredients cool slight and add to the blender. Then add:
3 tomatillos, rinsed and sliced
1 large bunch of cilantro, rinsed
1/2 cup sour cream
milk to desired consistency (I used rice milk)

Blend until smooth.

Prepare noodles and pour green mixture over the top. Heat through. Serve warm and garnish with queso cotija (Mexican crumbly cheese) or parmesean or a cheese of your desire.

Delicious and healthy. And another green dish just in time for St. Patty's Day.
