Very simple and delicious!

MY REVIEW

Delicious! I didn't have noodles, so subbed 1 1/2 cups bow tie pasta. We loved this pasta in the dish, and I'll probably always use the bow ties. The only other change was to use 4 oz Parmesan cheese rather than 3/4 cup (6 oz)--I had some good imported stuff. The sauce is pretty thick, so if you like a looser sauce thin it with milk. I'll definitely make this again.

My husband and I thought it was okay and all my kids hated it so I won't be fixing this again.

Definite addition to our personal cookbook! We love fresh spinach, and always looking for new ways to incorporate in a side dish.
