Linguine Florentine Ingredients

Start by preheating you oven to 350. You'll need a large casserole pan.  Spray it with cooking spray.  Cook your pasta and spinach according to package directions.  Don't worry if they're done before you need them, you won't need to worry about the pasta and spinach cooling to much before you use them.  When the pasta is done, drain, don't let it sit in the water.  Drain the spinach too.

Mushrooms and Onions, cooking in a skillet.

In skillet, heat oil on medium high. When the oil is hot, add mushrooms, onions, and garlic.  Cook until onions are clear, about 5 to 6 minutes. 

Spinach and pasta added to the mushrooms and onions in skillet.

Add the pasta and spinach to the mushroom and onion skillet.  Mix to combine.  Add the mix to your casserole pan.

Tomato sauce, parma cheese, and Italian spices

In large bowl, beat eggs. Stir in the tomato sauce, seasonings, and Parmesan cheese.  Pour the mix into the casserole pan.

Linguine Florentine, ready to go into the oven for baking.

Stir the sauce and eggs into the pasta.  Cover dish with foil and bake for 25 minutes.  After 25 minutes, remove dish from oven and remove foil.  Sprinkle mozzarella over the top and cook 5 more minutes.

Linguine Florentine, yummy!

Pasta and cheese, what's not to love!  And the vegetables and eggs make this a guilt free indulgence!  (Ok, maybe low-guilt indulgence.)
