    JPsBarbie's Note:

    One of Simi's favorite dishes is Pasta Al Forno from Nick's, a little Italian place by home. She declared this recipe even better. It is gooey with the mozzarella and provolone and healthy with the spinach. This like lasagne or baked ziti can be put together ahead of time and as with most pasta dishes the leftovers are even better. This freezes well in individual portions for a quick meal the kids can "make" for themselves.

      This is more like Simi's Pasta Kitchen Sink, cuz everything is in here! I followed this to the letter, using Hunt's Garlic & Herb sauce as directed (although it's 24 oz.). I also used fresh spinach. I think everything was perfect except I thought there was not enough sauce. I actually ended up pouring some additional sauce over the top halfway through baking, because it looked a little dry. But I think that's a matter of personal taste. We really enjoyed the final product and I look forward to making this again. Made for Spring PAC 2012.
