      This was a great combination of some of my favourite foods - pasta, spinach and sesame. I would probably double, even triple, the amount of sesame seeds just because I really like them. I did substitute butter for the margarine (personal taste) and used black and white sesame seeds. This was thoroughly enjoyed with Chicken Piccata (South Beach Phase 1) and mixed veggies. Made for my adopted chef for PAC 2011. Thanks Ck2plz! :)
