We enjoyed this lovely dish as a side with our oven baked chicken. Made as written using arugula instead of spinach, loved the pepper flavor it brought to the dish. The angel hair pasta was light and refreshing, not too creamy, with great flavors, that all blended well together. Great use of contest ingredients. Thanks for sharing. Good luck in the contest.
