    Wow! This was super rich, & certainly very caloric, but well worth it for a once-in-awhile treat. Unfortunately forgot to purchase mushrooms, which would have added to the lusciousness, but sautéed some onion & threw that in. Rather than going through the extra step of steaming the spinach, I simply put it in the colander & drained the spaghetti on top of it. It was simple to get the spinach out then to chop it up. I agree with a previous reviewer that shorter pasta would make this easier to serve.

    This quite good but really rich. It was a good way to use up leftover roast chicken. It does, however, call for a lot of chicken, a lot of cream, and a lot of cheese. I think this would be even better with a little bit of garlic cooked between the mushrooms and adding the chicken. It would also be easier to eat and serve using a shorter pasta than spaghetti (penne would be a good choice).

    Delicious! Excellent way to use up leftover chicken meat. Kids loved it, will go into regular rotation.
