Put water up to boil for pasta. As water is coming to a boil, chop onion small. Mince garlic cloves. (see video)
Coat bottom of large frying pan with oil. Heat oil and 3 pats butter on medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until onion is soft. When onion softens, add peas and stir often. When peas soften, add minced garlic. Stir often. (see video)
Once water is boiling, cook pasta. I prefer al dente. Cook pasta a little bit under what you normally would as it will cook a bit more once added to frying pan. (see video)
Wash your spinach under cool water. Add spinach to frying pan and cook until tender. Add browned breadcrumb mixture. Stir well. Reduce heat to low. Add cream, and cooked pasta. Add reserved pasta water. If it seems dry, add up to 1/2 cup of reserved water. Stir well. (see video)
Remove the frying pan from heat and add a handful of parmesan cheese . Stir all ingredients together. (see video)
Serve immediately. Enjoy.
