This is excellent with FRESH spinach! I added some red onion and baby bella mushrooms that I sauteed a few minutes beforehand to get the liquid out. Love it!
I was looking for a recipe that I could use fresh spinach and jarred pasta sauce in since that's what I had on hand. I'll admit, I was really leery of not cooking the noodles first, but they turned out beautifully!! I used a 9x13 pan and apparently it wasn't as deep as the one you use because I could not fit all 10 oz of spinach in it. It was probably only half the bag. Also, I only got three layers of noodles with 3 in each layer from my 8 oz box of pasta. Despite these amount differences, it cooked up well and was very good. If you use the non-stick foil, there is no problem with it sticking to the cheese. :) I served it with Homemade French Bread (abm) and Parmesan and Garlic Dipping Oil for a restaurant quality Italian meal.
Very good! It was simple without a lot of ingredients but it tasted great! I used whole wheat pasta to bump up the nutrition level. Thanks!
