OMG this is soooo good! The flavor's blend so well it's amazing. Like most other people I added to the recipe according to our tastes and what I had on hand. Hubby had seconds and would have eaten more if his stomach would have allowed. I used spiral noodles because it's what I had on hand. I also sauted an onion, some diced green bell peppers, 1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic (from a jar) in a little bacon grease until onions were clear. Then I added a jar of diced artichoke hearts, my diced cooked bacon and I partially drained two jars of my home canned tomatoes and added them as well and seasoned with some salt and pepper. I simmered this until my noodles were tender. Meanwhile I washed and rinsed a whole bag of fresh spinach then added them to my simmering vegetable mixture and turned the stove off. Once the noodles had been drained I mixed it all together and the spinach wilted perfectly just from the heat of both the vegetables and the noodles. Added more salt and pepper to taste. Next time I'm going to also add some sliced fresh mushrooms. I can see that this would also be good adding some diced roast chicken in it too. We tried it with and without added parmesan cheese on top and we liked it better without the cheese. Thanks Jean for sharing this wonderful recipe with the rest of us.
