This was wonderful, Dee! Wow. The cheeses in the sauce made a heavenly taste, along with the other ingredients. My sauce got a little thicker than I wanted so I just thinned it out with some more half & half. I will gladly make this again, it's lovely for company, too! Another winner, Dee. thanks!

So easy to make and amazingly delicious! The combination of cheeses is exceptional. The only thing I did was decrease the amount of pasta and increase the spinach. But we like lots of sauce and spinach. Going into the best of file. Thanks for sharing.
