I almost rated this 1 star. Well, it would have been 1-star if I hadn't added so much to make it edible.
Cooked the recipe just as specified. At the end I did add some already cooked, chopped chicken breast but I don't think that changed the flavor.
It was very bland and mostly just tasted like mushy pasta and overcooked spinach. I had to add salt, garlic powder, chopped onions, onion powder, and chicken bouillon to try and make it taste ok. At that point after adding all of that it was still mediocre and I needed it to taste good enough for kids to eat.
Then, as a last ditch effort, I added a tiny bit of italian dressing I had in my fridge. That seemed to make it better.
If I had it on hand I would've added some pesto but didn't currently have any.
I also wound up cooking some sausage (ground) and adding it. I figured at this point it won't hurt it but I did feel kind of bad wasting sausage on this.
It also doesn't need that much time cooking!!! Way, way less.
