Reviews forSpinach Pepperoni Spaghetti
"As written, a four. To make it a five, add 2-3 cloves of garlic to the mushroom mixture. Can use kale in place of the spinach. Add some fresh ground black pepper and save some of the cooking water from the spaghetti so it won't be as dry."
"I think I will try it with a little marinara sauce as a binder. Otherwise, tasty and quick"
