Recipe by MommyMakes

This is a nice, summery dish. Very pretty presentation too! The sauce is creamy with a hint of lemon. Very quick to put together as well!

Quick & easy recipe. I needed to adjust a few ingredients, only used 16 oz pasta (still made 6-8 servings for us), 1 cup milk, 6 oz cream cheese & 4 oz spinach. I didn't have time to make lemon zest to I sub'd lemon pepper. Nice combination of flavours, thanks for sharing.
