    Vicki in CT's Note:

    Excellent fresh tasting pasta with no heavy cream sauce. I have also made with whole wheat pasta with excellent results. From the Joy of Pasta by Joe Famularo and Louise Imperiale. Serve with valpolicella or other dry medium bodied red wine.

      Have to admit I used fresh spinach instead of spinach pasta...I had a couple of pounds of fresh spinach and a bunch of broccoli and I was looking for a veggie dish to go with some stuffed pork chops. It was so so good without the pasta, so I can only imagine how much better it would be with it! Thanks.
