Fill a pasta pot with 1/3rd of water, bring to boil and blanch spinach for just 5 minutes. Keep the water and remove the spinach. Re-heat the water to a boil and add pasta and broth cube or powder. 
Meanwhile chop the spinach and set aside. 

Blend the sauce ingredients with a spoon in a large bowl, until smooth, add some pasta water to smoothen and soften.
