    Mirj's Note:

    This is a great vegan dish. You can make it dairy by substituting the soy cheese with a good Edam.

      Great tasting and easy to prepare dish with a wonderful combination of ingredients and spices. I used the frozen spinach and cheese in this dish and it turned out wonderfully.

      i really enjoyed this! i used canned diced tomatoes instead and brown rice spaghetti and left out the soy cheese. i also cooked everything in one pot (except the pasta) and then tossed everything together in the end, forgoing the oven. thanks for a great recipe =)

      great way to use fresh-from-the-garden swiss chard! I used seashell pasta (8 oz) because I had no spaghetti in the house, and doubled the Edam. My version serves 4 generously as a main dish. Thank you for this recipe!
