This was really really yummy.... We loved it.... I did add 2 tbsp. of flour to make the sauce a little thicker though.... I also forgot to halve my cherry tomatoes, but it was still delicious..... This is a true keeper..... Thanks so much for sharing... Prepared this for Random Review Game.....

This was really yummy. I added some leftover roast ham to make it a main dish and all of us loved it. (Including a six year old boy! He ate spinach!) This was very quick and easy and had a lovely texture. Next time, and there will be many next times, I think I will add some chopped garlic with the mushrooms, use lots of fresh basil, and add a splash of wine right at the end. Thanks for posting such a useful and tasty recipe!

This recipe is a classic example of why I love 'zaar so much. I had spinach; I had cream; I had no ideas for dinner. I saw this recipe and boy did it sound great. I don't do mushrooms, so I used garlic and onion. I cooked 16 oz of penne, and used 3/4 of it. My cherry tomatoes aren't ripe yet, so I chopped larger ones. I used fresh spinach instead of frozen, and loved it. I threw in a small pc of leftover BBQ'd chicken. Pine nuts would have been yummy too. Maybe I could have invented this myself, but not on a brain-dead day like today. I'm glad this recipe was there to give my little family something they loved and devoured until NONE was left.
