Angel Hair Pasta Delight

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell

When I created this recipe, I had recently discovered Asiago cheese and loved the flavor. It really makes a difference when added to a simple dish, and a little goes a long way.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup spinach mixture, 1 cup pasta, and 1 tablespoon cheese)
