Spinach Spaghetti Aglio e Olio

4 ounces dry spaghetti
4 garlic cloves, sliced
1/2 cup parsley leaves, minced
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 cup spinach leaves, minced
pinch red pepper flakes

Prepare and drain spaghetti according to package directions. Don't forget to salt your water and work on preparing the other ingredients while the spaghetti is on the stove.
Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and sautee for about 2 minutes.
Add the cooked and drained spaghetti to the skillet and mix until incorporated with the oil and garlic. 
Add the parsley and spinach, stir until well combined. Let cook for another 2 minutes before turning off the heat and plating.

Comments:  I found this recipe online.  There were only 2 changes that I made.  One was to add 1/4 cup of half & half and the other was to add about 1/4 cup of Parmesan Cheese, adding both at the before the last 2 minutes of cooking at the end.  This is so good!  I took some over to one of my food testers and she loved it.  A delicious addition to this would be small shrimp!  Or maybe chicken.
