"This turned out well after a few alterations. I doubled the amount of spinach, and it was just enough. The diced tomatoes weren't enough, so I added a little bit of extra tomato sauce and about half..." See more a jar of alfredo sauce with mushrooms, and only then was it creamy enough. From what other reviews said, I added a little bit of salt and black pepper as well as a few teaspoons of dried oregano. My roommates loved it, but it definitely needed the extra ingredients."
"Yummy! This is creamy & light all at the same time. I probably used 4-6 oz of spinach; our precleaned bags are 9 oz. Just use whatever will fit in your pot. Try making it with whole wheat pasta fo..." See morer a good for you meal. If your family doesn't like whole wheat pasta (like mine) try Barilla Plus (in a yellow box). It tastes like white pasta, but has the health benefits of whole wheat pasta."
"This is so good! The nutmeg gives it a different but good taste. I doubled the red pepper flakes, used 6 oz. of baby spinach (definitely do the 6 oz instead of 4), and used fat free cream cheese. I al..." See moreso added 1/3 tsp. black pepper, a dash of salt, 1/3 tsp. oregano, 1/3 tsp. thyme and 1/4 tsp. garlic powder. Helped a lot. I have also made this when I did not have cream cheese by doing 3/4 cup skim milk and 1/3 cup margarine to make a cream sauce and added parmesan directly to it. Tastes a little different but is a great substitution. Works fine with macaroni noodles too."
