while pasta cooks place bread in food processor pulse 10 times or until course crumbs, measure 1/2 cup, I however use 4 slices or maybe more

melt butter in a large saucepan over med. heat. add onions and garlic cook about 1 min, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk, salt , peper, stirring constantly with a whisk until blended. bring to a boil, cook until thick (about 2 mins) add cheese, stir until melted

add fresh spinach and pasta to cheese sauce, stiring until well blended. spoon mixture into 2 quart baking dish coated with BAKING SPRAY. bake at 400 for 10 minutes or until bubbly. yield is 4 servings, unless you added more pasta as I did.
