    Kim D.'s Note:

    This makes a wonderful meatless main dish or a side dish. I adopted this recipe from Recipezaar in August 2006. I've since made this for my family and they loved it; however, I did made one minor change to the recipe. The original recipe did not call for garlic, but I felt it would have been bland without it. --NOTE-- Frozen spinach can be used. Just thaw, rinse and squeeze water from spinach very well before adding to the skillet of butter.

      This was excellent! You could easily add chicken strips if you wanted meat in it.

      This recipe is edible. That's the best I can say about it. The use of cream cheese makes the sauce sticky and if you follow the directions and start the pasta when it says to, you really have enough time to make a bachelmel sauce or even a straight cream sauce. I will not make this again.
