Wow! Delectable!A must for blue cheese lovers! The pasta, spinach, cheese, olives..... it all makes such a nice combination. What an elegant dish....one I will definitely be making again!=)The only thing I would change would be to use fresh spinach instead of frozen (just my own personal taste). Note: If others do not prefer blue cheese I wouldn't hesitate to use freshly grated parmesan in place of.
