Fusilli with Spinach, Tomatoes, Asiago and Parmesan Cheese

Today's tried and true recipe, Fusilli with Spinach and Asiago Cheese, can be found on foodnetwork.com and is courtesy of Emmy Award-winning celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis.  

This wonderful pasta dish is light and delicious...simple to make too.  With over 380 reviews and a 5 star rating, this is a recipe I plan on making time and time again, my family loved it.  

Here are some of the great reviews for the recipe.   Head over to foodnetwork.com to read them for yourself (great tips in the comments).
"Excellent and quick! We've been making this for a year now and its always a huge hit."
"LOOOOVE this recipe! One of my favorites. Quick and easy= perfect for weeknights. Delicious!"
"It is delicious and super easy!! I have been making this ever since I saw the episode sometime last year. My husband says this is one of his favorite dishes ever. Sometimes I use a regular large tomato and just cut it into small chunks and it is just a good."
" A total home run...friends loved it and I enjoyed how easy it was..best part is that you can match it with any protein."
"Very good. My very picky kids and husband even liked it."

I followed the recipe as directed, only adding in a little more garlic than the recipe called for. Many comments recommended reducing the amount of pasta and increasing the amount of spinach and garlic.  You can adjust the garlic and spinach to your personal taste and add/serve with a protein too. You can even switch the pasta to your favorite, like penne and rotini.
