Spinach and Pasta Shells

Spinach and Pasta Shells

YAKUTA

"This is a very easy recipe and for those people who like garlic and a little bit of spice in their pasta it's perfect. Add more or less red pepper flakes depending on your fondness for spicy food. This goes great with a salad and some garlic bread, if desired."
