Reviews forCreamy Spinach Sausage Pasta
"This was very good, came together quickly and the leftovers were excellent. Janet. VFE"
"made this for my 3 adult men and they loved this it was a hit and easy to make"
"This was WONDERFUL. It tasted like something you'd get from a very popular pasta restaurant. I cut this in half for just my husband and I, and served it with garlic knots. Because I had cut it in half, it seemed about ready in 20 minutes. I put the cheese on and baked it for about another 5-6 minutes. This was so tasty, I can't wait to make this again!"
"This was very creamy and tasty. the flavors worked well together."
"Pretty good dish and my hubby really liked it! Thought it was a tad on the rich side, probably from the cream cheese and creamed spinach. Would definitely make again though!"
"This is a keeper. I used mild sausage this time but will try medium next time for a little more flavor. I think this would also be good using ground beef or shrimp."
