fresh spinach, washed and chopped

I'm giving this recipe 4 stars when it's made as written. It's good and very nutritious, but it's a little bland. However, the second time I made it I used two 15 ounce cans of diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano, and that gave the dish the flavor kick that it needed. With that change, I might give this recipe 5 stars.
This meal was boring and tasteless. Had I known sooner, I would have been prepared with some basil pesto and plenty of Parmesan cheese to liven it up with. Also, the addition of 1 Tbls. garlic salt would be an improvement.
Very tasty! Easy to prepare. Next time I will add mushrooms, onions and red pepper flakes. It was a hit in my house!
I'd make this for company. I combined this recipe with the instructions for "Suki's spinach and feta pasta" which is almost the same recipe. I used a 6 oz. bag of baby spinach that I washed & chopped & also used whole wheat penne. I sauteed the garlic for just a little while 1st. I added salt & pepper & also added 1/2 a pound of defrosted shrimp, just to warm it up, before adding the pasta & feta cheese (I happened to have plain feta in the frig). If you keep stirring the mixture at the end, the feta melts & the sauce gets an orangy, creamy texture. I also put red pepper flakes on the table, if someone wanted even more zip. I'll try 3/4 of a cup of feta next time as my husband thought the feta had a strong taste, although I loved it & we finished the whole dish.
Excellent! I took the previous suggestion and used whole wheat penne and reduced fat feta. Turned out fabulous. Will make again!
I tried this recipe this week. It was amazing. Made a few changes. Added a few more cloves of garlic, some balsamic vinegar and thyme to the tomatoe/spinach mixture. Grilled up some chicken breast and cut it up in there. It was amazing and I will definitely make it again.
This was great! I used 1 package of frozen spinach, 1 can of whole tomatoes (I diced them), 5 cloves garlic, 1 cup of feta, and 1 cup dried Parmesan cheese. Tasty! Definetely a keeper. Thanks!
Great dish, but I changed some of the amounts. I used twice as much pasta, one 14.5 oz. can of chopped tomatoes with onions, and only about 3 oz. of feta. I really liked the taste. I'm not sure I would use the entire 8 oz. of feta even if I had it, because mine was salty enough. Next time I won't drain my tomatoes, as the dish was a bit dry (but I did double the pasta, so I don't know what I expected!). I love pasta but I was getting tired of the same old tomato sauce- this will definitely become a staple in my house.
