Pasta with Spinach Pesto Sauce Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
I made a few changes to this and liked the results. Used only 12 oz whole wheat pasta, added the garlic and 1 T olive oil to the onions and mushrooms rather than in the food processor. I used vegetable broth and "baco bits" to maintain the vegetarian nature of the dish. Also added about 1 tsp salt and a good handful of fresh basil leaves to the pesto. My husband said I should put this one on the "keeper" list and make it again.

A great, healthy alternative. It was really good but the recipe says "firm silken tofu". It should possibly say "firm or silken". Also, perhaps frozen spinach would work, too? Will try this again!

Excellent recipe! Healthy and very tasty. I would cut the amount of pasta down next time to have more sauce.

I didn't have tofu on hand, but it's excellent without it as well.. My husband even loved it, and that man doesn't like ANYTHING. :)

I just made the sauce itself - left out chicken broth and all the mushrooms. It was amazing. It tasted like it was very bad for you, when in fact it is very healthy. five stars!

Healthy, green, and wholesome. With just the right kick of garlic. I added more broth and some milk to smooth out the pesto. You might expand the pesto recipe a little to balance out with the amount of pasta (or save the pasta for another sauce later). Frozen spinach ("brick spinach") worked just fine. My dad ate it up!! Ha ha... I'm slowly but surely converting my family to vegetarianism...

This was good. I think 1 lb of pasta was too much, or there should've been more sauce. My hubby ate it up then I told him about the tofu. He couldn't believe it! Yummy!

a very healthy alternative to pesto (spinach is so good for you) but not exactly the same thing. I liked it as a spinach sauce-type thing but a pesto it is not...

Not as good as everyone made it out to be. Try Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta ...so much better and half the mess.

I think I screwed up though...my sauce was really thick and it looked really unappealing...
