    It was very tasty. Needs a little more cook time.

    This was AWESOME!!! Super easy and absolutely DELICIOUS!!! I will definitely make it again. The only thing I will change next time is the amount of salt-it was a little too salty for my taste.

    Haven't made it but I'd love to know where the pot is from?

    Excellent recipe, delicious, minimum preparation and easy clean up. Great dish for "Meatless Monday" meal. Will definitely be making this again!

    Delicious, hearty, fast, and easy clean up. I cut the total recipe ingredients in half, then added additional 1/4 cup chicken broth because I thought it needed more liquid. The initial cooking time was a little less, I presume due to the smaller amount. I used 1 T dried basil instead of the fresh leaves.

    This was so tasty, and so easy! My husband loved it. Its just the two of us, so we had leftovers for a while, and this dish reheats well.

    I think this was a really comforting, tasty, easy meal. My husband prefers meat in our main meals so I added a pound of ground spicy Italian sausage and it was delicious. I would definitely make this recipe again and again.

    Things I loved about this recipe: it's a true one pot, it's very easy and inexpensive, and full of garlic and spinach. Things I disliked: my cooking time was the same as the recipe did require more liquid, I used more chicken stock. It lacked oomph in flavor. The basil should be added with the spinach not in the beginning of cooking as written- my basil was dull in flavor and color. I'll make this again but add basil with the spinach and other tweaks like add some wine or another flavor booster- capers, seafood, artichokes, etc. the magazine offers the twist if adding shrimp, which would be good.

    Made this exactly as written - except that it was obvious that I needed more liquid. I probably used 32 oz (a box) of chicken broth. Agree with others to add basil with the spinach. I will add shrimp or chicken next time to please the men in my life. Even with those comments, my main thought is - wow, this truly is one pot. I chopped the onion and garlic on a previous prep day, so oh my gravy this was easy.

    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?

    This was absolutely amazing! Used dried basil and it turned out nice.

    This is a great dish. Pasta came out perfectly. Cooking time was fine as well. The only thing I did differently was adding the basil at the same time I added the spinach. I will definitely be making this dish again.

    This was very easy to make and was absolutely delicious. My husband loved it. It's a great dish for company and it makes the whole house smell good! I topped mine with shredded mozzarella once it was on the plate. Yummy!

    We really enjoyed this dish. Fast and yummy. It needed a tad more liquid. I used shrimp and it cooked perfectly. I will make this again.
