This is easy and delicious. I have also made it with fresh asparagus in place of the spinach and prosciutto in place of the ham. Now...if you have dietary restrictions (sodium) either alter the recipe (good cooks know how to do that) or use low sodium recipes - there are a million of them. But not so much drama, if you please.

I don't make a lot of casseroles like this and apparently I should! It was really good. My husband loved it. I did use 3 cups of uncooked small pasta shells instead of the 8 oz of uncooked penne. It turned out great!

What is wrong with you people who keep rating recipies that you have not tried? Your vote should not be counted

I HAVEN'T TRIED THIS RECIPE AND IT SOUNDS GOOD THEN I SEE THERE IS STORE BOUGHT GRAVY IN IT AND THAT STUFF HAS LOTS OF SODIUM IN IT AND MY HUSBAND HAS TO WATCH SODIUM. I THINK ONE OF THOSE PACKAGES WOULD PROBABLY MAKE A CUP OF GRAVY SO I GUESS YOU COULD MAKE YOUR OWN GRAVY FOR IT. I DON'T BUY VERY MUCH READY MADE STUFF IF I CAN MAKE IT AT HOME. THIS RECIPE DOES SOUND GOOD.

I love this recipe. I make it all the time. I think the ground mustard adds a great flavor to the dish.

This was delicious, comforting and different!!! However, I thought it actually tasted better before I added the mustard - the mustard ended up overpowering the creaminess of the gravy and cheese. I will definitely make it again, with this minor change!
