First of all - I heavily edited the dish. I wanted to make shrimp florentine with pasta. I used FRESH spinach (wilted in a pan and drained in a sieve while I made the rest of the dish). A good Florentine dish tastes best with fresh spinach! I boiled a pot of ziti pasta... doubled the sauce and sauteed shrimp. I layered the ingredients in a baking dish as follows: pasta, spinach, shrimp, sauce, breadcrumbs/parmesan, ending with mozzarella. Due to time constraints I decided to broil the dish for 2-3 minutes instead of baking. This was very tasty but a little bland even though I used plenty of salt/pepper. I felt it needed just a little more umph - so perhaps some garlic and a pinch of chili powder or red pepper flakes may have made a difference. Overall it was tasty and my kids loved it too - but the sauce could use a few minor improvements!
