This was EXCELLENT and so fast to make. I made some variations: I used about 8 oz of fresh spinach, ex virgin oil instead of vegetable oil. I used red pepper and garlic pasta sauce which I think complemented the alfredo. I also used green squash since that was all I had. And added parm cheese onto the top. My husband and I will make this again and again! We are thinking on trying mushrooms, red pepper and artchokes next time in addition to the spinach and squash.
Good, but I suggest using less sauce & less squash. Also could use some spice; it's pretty bland.
I made this the other day. It came out SO good. Quite possibly the best dinner I have ever made. It is so easy, too.
FANTASTIC!! I used 2 yellow squash, 9 oz. package of spinach, and a little parmasean mixed in and across the top in addition to the mozzarella. Other than that, I followed the recipe, and it came out beautifully! Will absolutely make again!
Excellent dish! Any veggie will work in this dish depending on the season. We have varied the veggies a few times. The first time we used squash and zucchini and the second time, we used just zucchini. Both times, the dish was amazing. Love by my whole family, including my preschoolers! You can really use any type of pasta. I used whole wheat egg noodles the last time. I recommend using whole wheat/grain pasta if you want to make it healthier. SO easy and quick.
I used 2 squashes and that was just the right amount. It was a little bland, but a little parmesan on top helped. It was good w/ the frozen spinach, but I'd like to try fresh next time. I'd make this again for sure.
My husband and I loved this recipe and he hardley ever likes pasta without meat, let alone with some extra veggies in it! I wouldn't change anything about this recipe. We will definitely be making this one again!
