Green Spaghetti Recipe

green spaghetti


  • 1 lb of fettuccine noodles
  • 8 oz of spinach
  • 4 oz basil
  • 4 oz of cream cheese
  • ½ tsp minced garlic
  • ¼ cup of water
  • ¼ cup and 2 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp of grated parmesan cheese


First thing’s first, you need to get those fettuccine noodles cooking! Fettuccine noodles work best for this recipe because they allow maximum sauce coverage on the noodle. However, if you don’t have them, no sweat! It will still taste good with spaghetti noodles.

Once you’ve got the noodles cooking, you can blanch the spinach and basil. If you don’t know how to blanch, check out these instructions on how to do so! Don’t forget to squeeze the extra water out of the spinach and basil after you’ve blanched it. If you don’t have time to though, you can just skip this step and go straight to the blender step.

Next, you want to put the spinach, the basil, cream cheese, garlic, ¼ cup of vegetable oil, and water into the blender. Season this with 2 tsp of salt and pepper to taste. We love using our Ninja blender for this because it mixes everything so well and so quickly! There isn’t a lot of time spent pushing everything down so the blade can catch it to chop it up.

Once you’ve got your mixture nice and smooth, in a deep skillet, add 2 tbsp of vegetable oil, and heat set to medium heat. Once heated up, add the cream mixture from the blender and fry for about 2 minutes. Add the 2 tbsp of parmesan cheese and fry for 1-2 more minutes or until cooked through. Add salt and pepper if needed. Remove from heat.

Once this is done, it’s good to go! You can just add your cooked noodles to the skillet and mix until well covered. Serve with your favorite protein (we love steak with it!) and a side vegetable. 

That’s it! Easy peasy. And super fast! We love this meal year-round, but we especially love it as a St. Patrick’s Day recipe. I mean, it’s green. Like, super green. Very fitting for St. Patrick’s Day food!

I hope you all enjoy it! Let me know if you have any questions!
