Had to meddle with this a great deal. That much pasta needs much more to make it truly flavorful. Used butter instead of margarine/spread for starters. Minced 2-3x more garlic into the mix. Doubled the parm to 1/2 cup then added another 1/4 cup after tasting. Chopped fresh spinach instead of using frozen. It's in the oven now. Will let you know how it all turns out. I LOVE all the ingredients so don't see how this can be anything but a success. Maybe it's one of those dishes that tastes better after a few days in the fridge?
