Blaine Act Pasta with Cheezy Sauce and Spinach

Prohibition ended in the US with the passage of the Blaine Act 78 years ago. That's cool I guess. Alcohol companies are still nasty, just haven't yet buckled down to learn homebrewing.

If you're looking for something quick, pasta with cheezy sauce is always a good idea. With some green vegetable, of course.

1/2 lb. bow-tie pasta
5 oz. spinach
4 sun-dried tomatoes, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
spoonful flour
1/2 c. yeast flakes
2 c. water
few squirts mustard
splash shoyu soy sauce
spoonful tahini
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1/4 tsp. salt

1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta.
2. Fry garlic in oil over medium heat for a couple minutes. Add flour, cook for another couple minutes. Pour in 1 c. water, yeast flakes, mustard, soy sauce, tahini, turmeric, and salt. Bring to a boil. Stir, lower to simmer. Cook until desired thickness. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes.
3. Toss spinach into a pan with a little bit of oil and soy sauce. Cook over medium heat for a while, then add 1/2 c. or so of water, cover, and let wilt. Remove from heat once desired sogginess.

Remember, it's like how Toni Cade Bambara wrote, "Not all speed is movement. [...] There ain't no such animal as an instant guerilla."
