    Very quick, easy & delicious. I did make extra sauce as the other reviewers recommended so that the leftovers would be a little moister. I also cut up the spinach into smaller pieces and then folded everything together at the end in one big bowl before putting it the casserole since I made a big mess trying to do it the other way. :) Served it with French bread and a salad. Great recipe, derf.

    This is a great recipe! I switch the flakes for a fresh, chopped chili, the tarragon and parsley for plenty of dried oregano, and use creme fraiche in the sauce instead of parmesan. Thinking about making a vegetarian version of this with mushrooms, or perhaps a fish one with salmon. Salmon and spinach is always a good combo.

    Family loved it! Will definitely make again. Substituted Mozz cheese for sharp cheddar and was still good.

    Good and easy to make...doubled up on sauce, spices and noodles for family of 5 w/room for leftovers. I would wait to add salt on top of cheese after done cooking if it needs it.
