I chose this dish to take on holiday to cook (self-catering cabin in Scotland) because it was so easy and I had many of the ingredients to pack easily. It is scrumptious and I have now made it several times as it is a quick week-night supper. I have never used the amount of oil it calls for, I probably use less than a quarter cup. I did add roasted red bell peppers once and this was equally delicious but not necessary. It's a colourful and tasty dish.

Very nice pasta dish and so fast for something special. I enjoyed the contrasting flavors in your recipe. Thank you for sharing!

This was a fantastic recipe, with great contrasting (but complimentary) flavours and textures. I loved the saltiness of the prosciutto and parmesan, compared to the garlicky spinach, the sweetness of the raisins and the toasted crunchiness of the pine nuts. Delicious!
