This is one of my new favorite recipes, and by far my favorite concoction that I've ever whipped up myself! It turned out amazing,and the whole house smelled amazing (if you like the smell of garlic, that is!). I was reading a Spinach Pasta recipe that I was going to make, but didn't have 75% of the ingredients, so I created this one instead! And I'm so happy I did!

This is a delicious recipe that we really enjoyed. I did make one BIG change to it however. The recipe calls for 3/4 c of olive oil. I used about 2T instead. I figure this must be a typo as I can't imagine what it would be like with more oil. Next time I will also sprinkle parmesan cheese on each individual serving. Adding it to the tomato mixture was good, but the cheese tended to clump together so I think it would be better as a topping. Thanks for sharing!
