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 Recipe #436445 and mixed veggies. Made for my adopted chef for PAC 2011. Thanks Ck2plz! :)
