I loved this. we added chicken and mushrooms to the pasta and that made it extra good.
Made this last night and it was delicious. I doubled the recipe to have it as a main dish. I added a little grated cheese to my serving dish because I am Italian and I put grated cheese on everything :) It was fabulous with or without the cheese. For the comment about the spinach stuck together in a clump,, next time chop the fresh spinach before cooking it and that will make it incorporate throughout the pasta. Great recipe and so easy
I made this for the second time tonight. This time I added finely sliced strips of zucchini and some white wine. This could be a meal on it's own but tonight i am serving it with some salmon. Yum!!!
Love it. Spinach is super cheap where I live (El Salvador) and although I can't get any lemons to have the lemon peel in this recipe, it turns out great with just the juice. Love the extra flair that the pepper gives it!! :)
I now also double the spinach also and this is still one of our favorites. Thank you for a perfect side dish that compliments spinach! :)
