Fantastic! To make this a little more kid friendly I blended the onion, garlic, and tomatoes after sautéing them. The sauce still turned out well. The kids and we parents really enjoyed this yummy pasta dish.

LOVED this! Tasted like something you'd get from Olive Garden. I did not use onion or fresh garlic. Instead I used garlic powder and I think this shortened the cooking time. Will definitely make again!

My whole family enjoyed this dish! I used unsweetened almond milk instead of cream and added mushrooms instead of spinach (didn't have spinach on hand) and it was gone fast!
