    Just perfect. We didn't have penne and had to substitue small shells which made it seem like a most incredibly decadent mac n' cheese!

    This recipe was awesome! I poured the pasta and hot water over the spinach in the collander so it would wilt more. I also added a few cloves of minced garlic when cooking the onions. I used white wine instead of vermouth. So good!

    Loved this! Very quick and easy. I added a tiny bit of chile flakes with butter and shrimp, and slightly butterflied, not all the way, the shrimp, cause i like the texture when they curl up. Also just the tiniest bit of lemon juice at the end really makes the flavor pop.

    Tasty, but not quick. Doubled the spinach and steamed it over water because the noodles weren't doing the job. Don't know if I'll make it again - the nutmeg was a nice change, but perhaps not my favorite.

    I've made this for years, so a house favorite. Now we have a LO (17 months) and are doing BLW. He doesn't like shrimp, but I subbed in small bay scallops and he gobbles them up. Yeah for a food that's not the standard spaghetti that we can share with the LO. Plus, it has "hidden" spinach. I always put spinach in colander and drain pasta over it so it wilts well while I am cooking the seafood and sauce.
