This recipe was quite good. The only things I did differently was add some herbs to the ricotta mixture and cook it five extra minutes (my noodles needed it. I guess it may vary by brand?). It came out very good.
My kids loved this recipe. It was inexpensive and easy to make. I cut some calories by using lowfat cheeses. I will be making this one again.
Made this recipe and it was GREAT! My family LOVED it, even the little ones!! I did make some changes...I did not use nutmeg, bc i didnt have any. Instead of garlic powder i used minched garlic, I was out of eggs too! :/ but it came out fine without one haha. I used only HALF of the bag of frozen spinach b/c i added gr meat. and I used can tomato sauce and added italian spices instead of a jarred sauce. DELICIOUS!
Though good, it has room for improvement. For higher fiber content and flavor I use home made whole wheat pasta in the raw. Also I use fresh, not frozen spinach, much better texture and flavor. Fresh basil also boosts flavor as well as giving it that good feeling that basil gives. And whole milk cheeses,please!?!?! This skim business or low fat takes away from the flavor. Julia Childs was right! If you want the flavor you have to use the fat! Go out and exersise off teh extra calories!!
Great recipe - super easy to prepare. I used fat free cottage cheese instead of ricotta, otherwise followed the recipe exactly. My boyfriend loved it, too. Will definitely make again!
