Again, another quick and easy mid week supper idea which is pretty recession proof to be fair. Baby spinach is in season right now and is so sweet and versatile, all the while packing any meal with nutrition. The sun blushed tomatoes also add a delicious sweetness, however cherry would be fine. Any herbs such as parsley, basil or chives would be great also. This a filling meal and to stay on the healthy side I would serve this with a baby leaf salad and a simple vinagrette of oil, vinegar, garlic, herbs and Dijon mustard. I admit the cream is a health luxury but it does add a delicious rich texture to the dish. Enjoy this Mediterranean inspired dish for dinner and savour the left-over’s for lunch the next day.
