This was really good. I used 2 - 700ml jars of Classico Florentine Spinach and Cheese Spaghetti Sauce. And I was really lazy and used dry basil. I will definatley make this again. I think I will try Healthy Choice Chunky Lovers Italian Stlye Vegetable Sauce next time - it's fat free.

It tastes like something is missing. It was very bland. Needs garlic and carmelized onions to give it some more flavor. I would also cut the spinach amount in half and add some cottage cheese along with the ricotta. Turkey sausage would be a nice addition but would still keep the fat low. It was quick and easy to prepare. The hardest part is drying the spinach, used a lot of paper towels. I would not make this with the ingredients stated again. Hope this helps someone. Thanks, Dawni
