This is a keeper! Made with whole grain farfalle, 11oz cello of baby spinach (could use more) and instead of grape tomatoes I used a can of stewed tomatoes which I highly recommend. I even added the juice. We aren't huge cheese fans so I cut back on the feta and I think the stewed tomatoes added much needed flavor since we used less cheese. Also added diced grilled chicken breast. Start with a large pot such as a dutch oven...a skillet isn't big enough when folding in this much fresh spinach. This feels healthy....except you don't want to stop eating it cuz it's so good!!

Loved this dish.  We all did.  I doubled the recipe and used a can of diced tomatoes in place of the grape tomatoes.  Other than that I didn't change a thing.  It will be in my pasta rotation.  

Easy, Delicious Meal

Made the recipe except for  Feta Cheese, just added a little more Parm Reggiano, the flavor was very good. Had some mini Farfalle which I think worked very well with the dish overall.  Will definitely make this again and again. So easy, and so full of flavor.  Yum

Nice basic recipe

I could see there might be a need for more flavor, so I added about 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil and 1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano, as well as a few green olives and topped with pine nuts.  Like others, I added more spinach. I did use only parmesan, so this was partly in compensation for not having the tang of feta. On the other hand, I would do the same even with feta!  Serving size was plenty, and I added only a toasted ciabbata roll half spread with some goat cheese to the plate.

Delicious; not a vegetarian, but didn't miss the meat in this dish (course had to add some precooked grilled chicken for the husband's portion!). Only thing I changed was instead of adding that last tablespoon of EVO, I used a lowfat prepared pesto

The flavour was amazing. I did add some red chili flakes for a bit of heat, and added some mushrooms, 'cause they had to be used up, but otherwise followed recipe exactly. Both hubby and I loved it, will definitely make again. The two of us could have eaten it all, it was sooooooo good. Nice to have a vegetarian meal that tastes great!
