Top Review by Noor.Khalid

I had to modify this recipe by adding an extra clove of garlic and an extra 1/2 teaspoon of Mrs. Dash seasoning and the recipe was still too bland for our family's preference. I think the issue is with the fat free ricotta as I noticed that it didn't have as nearly as much taste as the regular kind, which is disappointing because I wanted a low fat recipe. Perhaps this recipe will improve with the addition of an Italian herb mix or basil, but I think I'll give this one a pass in the future. Thank you very much for posting anyway.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain; set aside.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoons butter in a nonstick skillet. Add mushrooms, green onion, and garlic. Cook and stir over medium heat until mushrooms are softened. Add spinach and water. Cover; cook until spinach is wilted, about 3 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Combine ricotta cheese, milk, egg, nutmeg, salt, black pepper and herbs, if using, in large bowl. Gently stir in noodles and vegetables; toss to coat evenly.
  4. Lightly coat a shallow 1 1/2 quart casserole with nonstick cooking spray. Spread noodle mixture in casserole. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Bake 25-30 minutes or until knife inserted halfway to center comes out clean.
