My husband is on a salt restricted diet so I had to make a few changes. I used whole wheat angel hair no salt added tomatoes fresh spinach and a slice of swiss cheese that I diced up. We both loved it. Next time I will bake off some ground chicken or turkey meatballs and add into the sauce for a one pot meal! Pros: Quick Easy & Yummy Read More

Quick & Easy Mine came out yummy! I added Mrs. Dash tomato basil garlic seasoning to the tomatoes. I let the tomatoes totally break down and then added the spinach. Enough black pepper and garlic then tossed with whole wheat rotini with a tablespoon of water from pasta:) Season tomatoes well for a non bland result! The Mrs. Dash really helped kick it! Read More

This recipe was good but it was still a little bland even with the addition of 3 chopped cloves of garlic. I think that one can of tomatoes is not enough for a full pound of pasta. I'm going to make this again and use 1 1/2 or 2 cans of chopped tomatoes. Read More

At the suggestion of others I added garlic and red pepper. I also added chopped mushroom. The feta gave was a nice Mediterranean twist. If you don't like feta just substitute some freshly grated parm. This was DELICIOUS and fortified with veggie goodness! We will def. be making this again. kitchen_maeven Portland OR Read More

Easy to make but pretty bland. The canned tomatoes give it a weird taste... I'd almost rather use regular spaghetti sauce then add the spinach to that. Or maybe alfredo? Hmmm... Read More
