ABOUT Spinach Surprise- Pasta with Spinach and Paneer RECIPE

Spinach surprise is an Italian pasta dish. I have given an Indian twist to this recipe by adding our cheese that is Paneer. This is a healthier version of pasta as white sauce is prepared using whole wheat flour. This is an easy dish to prepare and also an yummy method to introduce spinach to picky eaters. Spinach surprise is a nutritionally rich dish as it contains all the main food groups such as carbohydrate, protein and fat along with minerals. Now let’s learn to prepare this dish, shall we?
