Spinach Parmesan with Pasta

Sena Wilson


Pasta dishes are always a hit at our house. This is a good recipe for those who favor vegetable dishes for dinner, or for others as a side dish. You can do it all in one pan! If you like bacon, crumble some cooked bacon on top for an extra treat. It is rich in flavor so serve with some homemade bread and you will have a full meal.
