This is a great way to get your family to eat their spinach. This casserole is awesome! I used a lot of cheddar cheese in mine and it turned out great. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
This was the perfect recipe for me. It's easy, it's fast and it's oh, so delicious. My husband LOVED it - which is huge as he can be rather hard to please. Thank you for this GREAT recipe.
Excellent dish! Will definitely add it to our "keeper" file. I did not know what box size pasta to use. I cooked up 16 oz. and ended up using half in the recipe. I used a bag of already cleaned spinach.
