I thought this was very tasty! I ate it for my main dish, the rest of the family as a side. I agree with the previous poster that this barely makes 3 servings. I would double it next time! I also added pine nuts just because. Thanks for posting!

This was very good. I loved the spinach and pasta tastes mingled with the cheese. I used a mixture of Parmesan, Asiago, and Romano cheeses. The recipe claims to serve 4, but it's not even close to 4 servings. I'd say about 2 servings at most.
