Low Fat Baked Ziti with Spinach

This recipe comes from SkinnyTaste- one of my new favorite websites. I didn't have ziti-so I used penne pasta. I also didn't have frozen spinach, but I had fresh and it turned out great. For a low fat pasta, this is still rich and satisfying. Nutrition: 331 calories a serving, 7 grams of fat.
