I cannot believe the result of such an easy recipe....my kids asked if I could make again tomorrow! And since it took about 10 minutes total, I think I will!
My only addition was a little extra spinach and two pinches of red chilis (my kids like their food on the spicy side).
I created an account just so I could rate this recipe! This was sooo good! I added more spinach because I love it. I liked it as much, if not better than shrimp pasta I would get at a fancy restaurant because it tastes yummy without all the calories of a heavy Alfredo/ white sauce.
Excellent recipe. Quick, easy, and flavorful. The only change I made was I diced two medium tomatoes and threw them in with the spinach and pasta. I really liked the acid that they added to the recipe. My kids (ages 8 and 3) both asked for seconds, so it is definitely a keeper!
