  • 16 ounces rotini pasta, uncooked
  • 1 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese

Easy to make and very good. Ques We couldn't find the (10-3/4-ounce) can cream of chicken and mushroom soup combined. Should this perhaps be a can of cream of mushroom soup and a can of cream of chicken. If so,should we increase the milk also?? Thanks

Thank you soooooo much for changing the photo. The meal was very,very good but the photo was awful!!

Not my usual dinner but the family enjoyed it!

Ok some of u do not like the presentation so why not simply precook the pasta and layer these ingredients in the oven covered about 45 minutes 375 degrees then uncover sprinkle with cheese and slip back in oven till melted OR simply sprinkle with buttered breadcrumbs before baking

Test Kitchen Team REPLACE THE PHOTO PLEASE!!!! It's hard to want to even TRY the recipe with that gloppy picture!

Ha-Ha so funny!

It is easy to make. I love it.

Am I the only one who thinks that the layers don't add up correctly in step 2?

Thank you for catching that. We have updated the recipe with the correct instructions.

is there anything you can use beside spinach in recipe

Yes, you can replace the spinach with chopped broccoli.

Why not try kale or Swiss chard. Different texture and flavor, but it would work just as well nutritionally speaking.

Sprinkle some fresh parsley or chives on top. Use your imagination to create a pretty presentation.

this may taste good but really, look at that photo...that makes me not want to make it, it looks like vomit, sorry, just sayin'...

I totally agree. The picture is awful.
