Rotini and Spinach With Kohlrabi Cream Sauce

Every once in a while, something new comes to my kitchen attention.

My housemate had kohlrabi in her CSA box and kindly let me feel free to use it. I prepared the radish family vegetable in two ways. The first is a delicious, dreamy cream sauce that went well with thick rotini pasta and yummy spinach.
