    I loved this recipe. I just typed in what I had in my cupboards. I added some smoked paprika and frozen mushrooms. Still tasted good. Spinach and pasta goes well together thank you mmmmm  -  26 Jan 2015


    This is an excellent supper for week nights. The only modification I made was to use fresh spinach versus frozen and added it to my colander prior to draining my pasta so that it cooked it slightly. This is a keeper.  -  06 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    In response to the previous poster who asked how the sausage should be prepared: my recommendation is to remove the casing- especially if you're serving it to kids. If you don't remove the casing, it could roll back while cooking the sausage pieces and you'll get the inevitable question from your kids, "What's this?" then "What's it made out of?" then "Ewww!" Best bet: use frozen sausages, thaw very lightly in the microwave, then use a sharp knife to cut membrane and remove.  -  29 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
