Guilt Free Spinach Cream Sauce

Ok, so I finally went and did it. I decided to start a blog. For what seems like forever I've been getting requests for recipes, or getting asked how to make things, so I figured - Why not? For those of you that don't know me, I'll tell you a little about myself. I'm a Floridian, born and raised, and I come from a *very* Italian family. We love to eat, and we love to feed people! I started cooking when I was a kid alongside my parents in the kitchen, and that's where my passion was born. 

So here's a new recipe that I've come up with, Hopefully you'll enjoy it as much as I did!

Guilt Free Spinach Cream Sauce

2 Servings
4 WW Points per serving

1 Vidalia Onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Plum Tomato, diced
1 Cup fresh spinach, chopped
1 Handful of Fresh Basil
4 Sprigs Fresh Parsley
3 Laughing Cow Swiss Cheese wedges
1/2 Cup Low Sodium Chicken Broth
1 pinch of crushed red pepper
1 TBS Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

Add Olive Oil, Onion and Crushed Red Pepper to a frying pan. Saute on low until onions are translucent and a beautiful caramel brown color. Add Garlic, Spinach, Basil, Parsley and Tomato and saute until Spinach is wilted and Tomatoes are tender, about 5 minutes. Add the 3 cheese wedges and stir until melted, then add the chicken broth and let simmer until you have a thickened creamy sauce. Finish off with the salt and pepper and serve on top of your favorite pasta or ravioli! (I swear the pictures will get better as I go along lol)
