Parmesan Pasta Florentine

This is another recipe with my farmer's market veggies.  The spinach had suffered some hail so it
wasn't pretty.  That doesn't mean it is less tasty.  I thought this recipe would be a great use.  I loved
it!  And so easy to prepare.  That is a little nasturtium bud as a garnish.

1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 package of fresh spinach, steamed and well drained
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 ounces linguine, cooked and drained
Place milk, broth and spinach in blender or food processor container fitted with steel blade, cover. Blend until smooth.Cook and stir onion and garlic in spread until tender. Add spinach mixture. Cook over low heat 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add cheese and pepper, stirring 1 minute or until slightly thickened. Pour over linguine, mix lightly. Makes 4 servings.
