The smells are fabulous and only one dish to clean. I prefer this meatless. There is a picture with a spicy meatball for my husband.

So many things we loved about this recipe! This is a great meatless dish that you can easily add your favorite meat. It's full of great Italian flavors with a little bit of a bite from the red pepper flakes. The different cheeses not only give this dish a yummy flavor but also a great aroma while baking. The combination of tomatoes and spinach in the sauce is so good. This pasta is not only flavorful but super easy to throw together. This is a great weeknight dinner or great to bring to a potluck.
