We love a warm, cheesy casserole, especially when it's got vitamin A-rich spinach. Four cheeses make this one extra special.

Preparing Perfect Pasta

Follow the package directions to ensure that enough water is used for cooking the pasta. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente (tender but still a little firm to the bite), stirring frequently. To prevent pasta from sticking, add it slowly to plenty of boiling water and stir frequently while cooking. Adding oil to the cooking water is not recommended because some sauces may not cling to pasta coated with oil.

This is an easy creamy casserole. I used a soft white cheese rather than a brick of cream cheese. The one thing it sorely needed was flavor. I added 2 tsp. salt 2 tsp. granulated garlic 1 tsp. garlic and 1 tsp. Italian seasoning. That helped give it some zing. Read More

There is nothing disagreeable in this dish but it needs something more. It was rather blah to us. Pepper jack? Served this with cooked diced chicken breasts in it. I won't be making this again. Read More

This recipe was quick and easy to make. I used fresh spinach instead of frozen used low fat cream cheese used a blend of part-skim mozzarella smoke flavored provolone parmesan and romano cheeses and did not use any parmesan on top. I also added onions to the pasta when I boiled it because I love onions and used some garlic salt for additional seasoning. It was delicious. Read More

I should have added some salt and maybe a little garlic as it was somewhat bland Read More

This dish was definitely tasty! I made a couple of changes. Instead of just cottage cheese I did 1/2 cup of cottage cheese and 1/2 cup ricotta cheese. I also added some grated pepper jack cheese for extra flavor. Read More
