I made up this recipe one night when I was very tired and had no desire to wander around a grocery store trying to figure out what to make. To make the dish even more delicious, I sometimes top it with Parmesan or mozzarella cheese. Adding red pepper flakes gives it a little more kick.

"Recipe was easy to make but we didn't really like the combination of flavors. I used thawed frozen spinach so maybe that was part of the problem. I added some garlic as one of the reviewers suggested. Would not make the recipe again."

"This was a quick and edible meal to make. I added garlic to it but everyone still found it lacked a little something. Everyone agreed it needed some more spice. I added a touch of cayenne to the leftovers and that was better. Would also be good with some spicy sausage added to it. Even being a touch bland everyone still ate it so it will be made again with a few tweaks since it is a quick easy weeknight meal."

"Delicious! My whole family loved it! (3 young children) I used broccoli instead of spinach, rotini pasta, and a 3 cheese alfredo sauce. It was very flavorful, and so easy! Will definitely add it to my binder of recipes to make again."

"My kids are pretty picky and they all cleared their plates! It has a great flavor, but mild enough that the kids don't notice the veggies. And I appreciated how quick & easy it was to make. Loved it!"

"My family seemed to enjoy this dish last night. I added a couple cloves of fresh garlic and a small can of sliced black olives, and used frozen chopped spinach (thawed). Be sure to use a good quality Alfredo Sauce for best results."
