Pappardelle Pasta with Spinach and Almonds in a White Wine Cream Sauce

1 bag pappardelle pasta (found at Trader Joe's)
1/4 cup butter
3 tsp fresh minced garlic
1/4 cup white wine

Pinch of salt and pepper to taste
1-2 tsp fresh lemon juice

Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, heat butter in large sauté pan, adding in garlic over medium/low heat. Then add in wine and reduce to low cooking 2-3 minutes until alcohol evaporates. Now add in milk and flour and whisk over medium high heat until bubbles form, then reduce heat back down to low adding in salt, pepper, lemon juice and parsley. Add in drained spinach until well combined, then toss in cooked pasta. Plate with slivered almonds and cheese on top. Enjoy!
