    Delicious

    I made this recipe exactly as written and loved it. My husband thought it would be even better with meat, so the next time I made it I added Italian sausage, mushrooms, and olives. Either way. it was delicious. We really liked the spinach in it. I will definitely make this again and will pass it on to my children!

    Easy and yummy

    It doesn't get any quicker or easier than this. We really enjoyed this, and had plenty left over for the next day. One of my daughters wanted it to be more saucy - I might add more next time.
