"I invented this recipe at the end of the week when groceries were running low-just a few ingredients make up this easy pasta dish. This can be a healthier yet still flavorful meal by using low-fat sour cream and whole wheat pasta."

Really, really good! I put in as much spinach as I could, as others have suggested and it was awesome. We also added in more pesto- try 1 1/2 or 2 tablespoons. Really easy and really fast. Thank...

We enjoyed this dish very much: no leftovers. I made it because I had a lot of fresh spinach left that I wanted to use. I wish I had chopped it a little first. I added about 1/2 teaspoon of crus...

This was pretty bland even with the suggestions from other users. I added in oregano and pepper flakes to kick it up. The sour cream became gritty upon mixing it with the sauce though.. I wonder...
