"I have made this hearty pasta dish for years. It's been a while since I've made it and my husband just asked for it! It makes enough for a small army but it freezes well and left-overs taste great the next day too. It's been a keeper since I first made it years ago."

"Spiral pasta=fusilli. Leave out the canned mushrooms, use fresh baby spinach. This is worth the work, and it freezes well."

"I made this for several years when the kids were still living at home because they liked it, and it was one way to get them to eat some spinach!"
