This is probably one of the only ways I can get my kids to eat spinach. My only warning is ensuring you don't end up with any clumps of spinach. Since you add the frozen spinach directly into the sauce, take the time to defrost it and separate it all in the sauce before tossing with the pasta. My 5 year old LOVED this.
