Creamy Spinach Pasta / Macaroni

My kids are addicted to pastas. However doing Pasta I find it very easy. Even though they love any type they are particularly has soft corner for creamy type. So I do it normally do it once a month since it is high calorie food. Our whole family has been big fan of Italy cuisine. I have used double cream in this recipe just because I had some left over. You can use normal cream. Indulge this creamy pasta if you are big fan of pasta dishes
