Wonderfully delicious. Like other posters, I added the basil with the spinach at the end. I thought it was pretty salty, so I would reduce the salt next time. I had a question about the 12 oz pasta - was that 1.5 cups in a liquid measuring cup, or was it supposed to be 2/3 of a 16-oz box of pasta? I did the 1.5 cups in a measuring cup, and it was delightfully liquidy at the end, but I wasn't sure that was the desired outcome. What did the rest of you do?
