Questions & Replies

  1. Can I prepare this the night before and refrigerate and bake the day of event? I make this a lot but never prepared it ahead.


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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! :)
  4. Sure, I changed it up here and there, but what a GREAT recipe! Adapt away, folks. (The comments here will give ya some great ideas.) My one suggestion: mushrooms! OMG, it's such a good dish! TY, TY, Marsha!
  5. This casserole made a great meatless dinner for me and my husband. It was a perfect way to eat more spinach. I added a can of cream of celery soup and used pepper-jack cheese, it tasted wonderful. Thanks for such a great recipe.


  1. I did follow the suggestion of adding the cream of mushroom soup and it turned out great. I also messed up and got pepper jack cheese instead of the regular monterey jack. I also left it covered for 30 minutes instead of the fifteen, thinking that could have something to do with the drying out.
