"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"
Serving Size: 1 (401 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"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."
"I have made this twice and I think the second time came out better. :-) I used two packages of frozen chopped spinach, the whole container of ricotta (2 lbs), the whole container of sour cream (16 oz), used 2 tsp basil and 1 tsp Italian seasoning instead of the dill, added two drained cans of diced tomatoes with garlic and onion, put in a layer of sliced Italian sausage, and topped it with shredded mozzerella. This recipe is going to be a standard for my friends who are new moms--it is a complete meal in one and makes enough so that they get half and we keep half! As a side note, I don't know how this is 4 servings per recipe--I think it is more like 8 dinner-sized servings as written, 12 with my additions!"
"This was excellent. The only thing different I did was use drained canned spinach. Thanks"
"I added basil to it, LOVED IT! GREAT DISH!"
"I liked this, but it seemed that it needed some more flavor, perhaps some sauteed onions and garlic (or maybe some cajun seasoning???). I halved the recipe, since I only had about 10 oz. of spinach and it still made quite a bit. I used about 1/2 tsp salt. I used light ricotta and sour cream."
"My kind of dish! Pasta with lots and lots of cheese! Used low-fat ricotta and sour cream and added only 2 eggs to the mix. This was tasty, very rich and very filling! Thanks Kit for another winner!! :)"
"This is VERY good! I a great way to have a wonderful meat in such a short amount of time. This is really easy to throw together, but it still tastes good. To my cheese mixture I added a bit of garlic powder for a bit of a kick. THis was just fabulous. Thanks!"
