I used whole wheat penne, and thought it went well with the strong flavors here. Easy and good.

I made this for dinner using spinach and Parmesan cheese. Delicious! For the guys, I added about 2 cups cooked chicken and it made a great meal! I served this with lettuce, and pickled carrots. Thanks Ellie!
