Derf "RIP" Forever in our Kitchen

I cut the recipe in half and there was still too much for the two of us, but will be gobbled up for lunch today. DH really liked this and that is saying something cus he is not a pasta fan. Loved the flavour and it is easy and quick, i just happened to have all the ingredients in. i used fresh chives from the garden, they do make a very nice finish with the parmesan. a very pleasant way to serve spinach! I used wide noodles, another time i will use a smaller/thinner type of pasta, thanks for posting.
