Pan Roasted Apples and Spinach with Whole Wheat Pasta and Pecorino Cheese

This recipe was a total experiment that ended up really good!  I was trying to find something to make my son for dinner, and saw apples and spinach in our veggie drawer. I wasn't sure how that would taste together, but I knew my son liked it pureed together so why not. I pan roasted it with a few different spices and tossed with cheese and whole wheat pasta. Well the result was delicious, like so delicious I wish I had made more than a single serving. The flavor was just so different and surprising. I will definitely be making this family size the next time I make it! This can be pureed for little ones 7+ months or served as finger food for little ones 10+ months.

Here's what you need for 4 to 6 servings:
1 bag whole wheat pasta
2 to 3 organic apples diced (like 1/2 inch cubes)
1 cup finely chopped organic baby spinach
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup grated pecorino romano cheese
2 tsp olive oil

Bring a pot of water to boil and cook the pasta according to package. Heat 2 tsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat, add the apples, spinach, nutmeg, cinnamon, and a handful (1/4 cup) pecorino cheese. Cook until apples are tender and spinach is wilted (about 5 minutes). Add drained pasta to skillet and 1/4 more cup of pecorino cheese. Toss to coat, serve and enjoy! If you are pureeing, puree your little one's portion (4 to 6 oz) with a little water until you get desired texture.
