Fresh spinach, chicken, and a combination of cheeses make this pasta dish comforting enough for the last days of winter yet fresh enough for the first days of spring. Serve family style or portion out in individual ramekins. Either way, this penne pasta casserole is definitely worth sharing.
The sandwich starts with thick rustic Italian bread, hearty enough to support the fillings but still tender. There are three kinds of cheese in play...and the toasty bread is infused with garlic flavor by rubbing it with cut garlic cloves.
