      YUM!! This was delicious!! I also used 2-3 garlic cloves, left the tomatoes whole but pricked. I also used whole-wheat penne and all freshly grated parmesan because the store didn't have asiago!? This was great - thank you!

      Full of color and flavor plus quick to make, this was a one-dish meal for us. I made 1/2 the recipe exactly as written and we both cleaned our plates. Thanks for sharing this sure-to-be repeated recipe!

      Excellent and easy. I (more or less) halved the recipe for the two of us and had it as a vegetarian one-dish meal. My BF wanted seconds so I helped him finish it up:) Too bad there were no leftovers to take to work the next day. I used a pint of grape tomatoes (left the really small ones whole), a 6 ounce bag of spinach, one garlic clove and only 1 teaspoon olive oil. I had planned on cutting back on the cheese, but ended up adding most of it.
