A meat-less pasta dish but one that you can easily add chicken to. Sometimes I also add a tin of tomatoes if I fancy something saucier. Goes great with some garlic bread and freshly grated Parmesan.
I made this one with whole wheat pasta and it tasted great. I cut the amount of pasta in half and used 9 oz of fresh spinach. I didn't boil my spinach; instead I sauteed it with the garlic and red pepper flakes. The only other change I made is adding freshly grated parmesan cheese on top. I will make this again. - 06 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

I rated this recipe a 5 for it's ease in preparation and fabulous flavor. I made some mild variations. I used whole wheat penne pasta instead of the shells. I also added 1 (14.5 oz) can of diced tomatoes when I added the cooked pasta and spinach to the skillet. Thanks for the great and simple recipe Yakuta! - 11 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
