My family enjoyed this very simple but delicious recipe! I changed it slightly to make it lower in fat by using fat-free half and half, only 2 TB butter and WW cheese. I also added some leftover ham when I added the cheese -- very good on a snowy day! Thanks for sharing!
I wanted to just make this on the stovetop, but decided to follow the directions from the chef and use the slow-cooker. I tasted this before adding the cheese, and found it needed something. So I minced up a garlic clove, added some salt and pepper, and then cooked for 20 more minutes before adding the cheese. I also halved the amount of noodles, but left the spinach amount the same. This turned out to be a nice side dish. Thanks for sharing!
A recipe like this could so much more easily and so much more quickly be made on the stovetop, but we probably all have times when we'd prefer to get the preparation done completely ahead of time, ready perhaps to feed a horde of teenagers about to descend. I loved the simplicity of the ingredients here, though (to meet our taste preferences) I did add an onion, a leek, some minced garlic, chopped bacon and some cumin and a good sprinkling of freshly ground black pepper. I used less salt than was specified: probably about 1/2 teaspoon. For teenagers, sausages would probably be a good addition! Very nice recipe, weekend cooker! Thank you for sharing it. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
With the chefs permission I baked this in the oven, since I dont have a slow-cooker --- I prepared the noodles on the stovetop, mixed everything together as directed and cooked in a covered casserole on a low heat. I uncovered it and sprinkled with cheese for the last 15-20 minutes. Noting other comments I did add some red pepper flakes, and some minced garlic. We loved this, and I was excited to have enough left over to have for my lunch today -- even better, I might add! Thank you, loved the recipe, --- oh, sudden thought, I had a generous tablespoonful of basil pesto in the fridge, so added it with the spinach mixture, just a little extra taste!<br/><br/>Made for PRMR tag game, thank you!
What a wonderful surprise this recipe was! Simple and delicious. I used fresh spinach (chopped), fat-free half and half and lowfat cheese with excellent results. For seasoning salt I used a mixture of salt, garlic powder, onion powder, celery salt and sweet paprika. The noodles stayed tender without getting mushy and the half and half made a nice creamy sauce that the cheese melted right into. Served this is a main dish and just loved it - thanks for sharing the recipe!
