This is such a nice little recipe. I made this after work yesterday. Start to finish, 1 hour and I had a dinner that tasted as if I'd been in the kitchen all afternoon. Love the spinach in this and I'm not a fan. I had 9 tubes of pasta and just enough filling for those, I used an 7x11 pan and 1/2 a jar of sauce. I also used FF cottage cheese with 1 tsp cornstarch added to it. Perfect....
