Really great dish! My husband loved it!! I'm not a fan of cream cheese in pasta, so I used ricotta cheese instead, and real fresh grated parmesan instead of the pre-grated Kraft parmesan. I will definitely make this dish again!

This was very good. I used Di Parma 4 cheese for the pasta sauce and left out the spinach. I have very picky eaters and they all ate this.

Excellent! Added fresh garlic, parsley, oregano, and crushed red pepper flakes to kick the flavor up a notch. My husband absolutely raved over this. Thanks!
