If you are a spinach lover, then here is a great-tasting side dish, pasta, cheese and spinach baked all in one casserole...very yummy! prep time does not include boiling the pasta or the spinach

Top Review by Paris D

We used 2/3 cup fresh basil and 1/4 cup parsley instead of the dill. We also added about 1 cup of halved cherry tomatoes. Good comfort food.

Take 2: Tonight, we made it with the dill and then added sauteed mushrooms, garlic, and a can of water-packed tuna. Delish! It would have been even better if we had added sauteed onions, as well.
