I'd been looking for healthy ways to use baby spinach other than just in salads and this really hit the spot. I added grilled chicken left over from the night before and it made a very satisfying main dish. Thanks Michael

Tasty! I used shell pasta, frozen spinach, and chopped tomato since I didn't have cherry tomatoes. It is not a main meal for us, but was a PERFECT side dish. I served it alongside chicken& sausage. Thank you!

Yummy! I used wide egg noodles and frozen spinach. It was just a little bland, so spiced it up with seasoning salt and a little pepper. Thanks Ellie!
