"An interesting twist on an age old favorite. Use your favorite shaped pasta - bow ties, shells, penne, etc...Can be assembled ahead of time and refrigerated, but allow extra time for baking."

I thought this sounded like a really great recipe-then I made it for dinner. I ended up not serving it because it tasted so bad.

This recipe was delicious. I made it for my husband and daughter who dislike spinach and they ate it up. My in-laws came out the next day and the leftovers were gobbled up in seconds. Next ti...
