Excellent recipe. I love it because you can make changes and not mess it up. Add cooked mushrooms if you like mushrooms. Add more cheese and milk (or cream) if you like it "saucier". Use spicy Monterey Jack if you like it spicier. Use more spinach if you are a spinach lover. Or leave it just like it is! Anyway you make it is great! Very simple and easy to make.
I thought this recipe was great as-is; the lack of "cream of" soups is one of the reasons I wanted to make it. I used whole-wheat pasta, low-fat sour cream, skim milk, added some garlic, and I used a handful of parmesan (& then more at the table). We didn't find this dry at all. It's not saucy, but the casserole was moist & flavorful. The only change I'd make is to saute the onions first - they weren't quite cooked all the way and were pretty strong. But, DH & I both enjoyed this, and it also reheats really well.
This was really tasty! To combat the dryness others mentioned I left the spinach undrained and doubled the sour cream; it seemed to have the perfect amount of moisture. I used jack cheese with jalapeños and thought the added spice was very nice. Next time I might add a few cloves of chopped garlic. Thanks for a great recipe Marsha! :)
