This was EXCELLENT and so fast to make. I made some variations: I used about 8 oz of fresh spinach, ex virgin oil instead of vegetable oil. I used red pepper and garlic pasta sauce which I think complemented the alfredo. I also used green squash since that was all I had. And added parm cheese onto the top. My husband and I will make this again and again! We are thinking on trying mushrooms, red pepper and artchokes next time in addition to the spinach and squash.

I made this the other day. It came out SO good. Quite possibly the best dinner I have ever made. It is so easy, too.

Good, but I suggest using less sauce & less squash. Also could use some spice; it's pretty bland.
