Great recipe. Spicy or not to your liking. Translated from french by myself

"This was one a friend pointed out, and I made it expecting it to be kinda bland. However, I found it surprisingly good, and *super* fast. I did add a half shake of both basil and parsley, and I smidgen of garlic powder, not enough of any of it to measure. I also finished the last 2 minutes of my noodles in the pan with the meat while there was still juice left from the bullion, all the flavors mixed quite well."

Awesome dish, easy to make and didn't take much time. Even my little ones enjoyed it. Only downside was the soupy consistency. A little too much chicken bouillon from my opinion but still tastes delicious!

Fantastic! Added 3 cloves of garlic. Pepper to taste and stirred in spinach when I poured in chicken broth. Husband loved it! I agree with others... Might try chicken too.

This was yummy! My very picky kids gobbled it up and asked for more....hardly ever happens! I added some garlic but otherwise easy, simple ingredients, and very good!

This was delicious! I used fresh fuselli pasta and chipotle sausages. The spinach didn't wilt enough for my liking so put pasta back in pan with sausages and cooked for another minute. Sprinkled some parmesan cheese on top to finish it off. Super easy and tasty dish to make for the whole family.

This I found to be a very good recipe, although I also added some pepper jack cheese, thank you.

Awesome! I used spicy Italian sausage and added a little minced garlic, red pepper flakes, ground peppercorn and a couple ripped fresh basil leaves to give it even more kick because I like spicy food. Honestly when I added the pasta to the spinach I thought they both looked rather dry and bland and that the dish might need something to coat and flavor the pasta, but when I tossed in the meat reduction, the natural oil from the sausage and the chicken stock coated and softened everything perfectly - no need to add anything :-) My 15 year old son woofed it down without hardly even chewing, which is how he eats anything he really lines- then THANKED me and told me it was 'really good' and after asking for SECONDS, proceeded to finish off the leftovers! Will def store this one under 'kid safe'
