    I've made with this a couple of times, substituting broccoli, and always adding mozzarella and black pepper. It does work better with chunky pasta like shells, elbows, or rotini.

    I had leftover ricotta from another recipe. I checked your search options and found this recipe. I did not have frozen chopped spinach, but I did have frozen chopped creamed spinach in the freezer. I mixed it in and instead of putting tomatoes in it, I put the tomatoes directly on the top of the hot pasta. It was creamy and delicious. I will see how it comes out when I reheat the leftovers.

    Easy to make, I added a little black pepper. Doesn't reheat well.
