    Loved this I used fettuccine, but would recommend shorter pasta.

    Wonderful.......I had to add more water and cook longer because of the shape of the pasta. My family loves bacon so I added more. Also chopped the spinach so I could add more.

    I added grape tomato halves to the pasta about half way through tasted great!

    Loved this! I'm thinking about trying it with cream of mushroom soup instead of the chicken stock next time.

    This turned out great! I used penne so I had to add a tad more broth to make tender. I also added boneless chicken to the recipe!!

    Loved it! It was easy to make and very flavourful. A new way of cooking pasta for me and it was cooked just right. My guests liked it. I'm making it again right now for my next social.

    It was yummy and easy to make. However it was kinda dry. May be better with a creamer sauce like Alfredo.

    Very good! I added portabella mushrooms and garlic when browning the onions. Since my can of reduced sodium beef broth was short of two cups, I topped it off with some red cooking wine. Also added some chopped sun dried tomatoes in the "boil" phase and a splash of half & half with the spinach at the end. Hubby says some shrimp would put it out of the park, but we loved it without.... Will definitely keep this one!

    Good recipe. I substituted Canadian Bacon for American Bacon the 2nd time. Much better.

    Awesome! I used Campanella pasta and it held onto the sauce perfectly. This recipe is a keeper.

    This dish is a new favorite in my house. I never thought of cooking pasta with broth which gives pasta a different flavor and it's quicker. You can add anything to this recipe and it will turn out great. Ft
