I love to make this satisfying pasta dish to serve at any festive occasion. Baby spring spinach adds substance and visual interest, offering up an enticing way to serve up a dose of leafy greens. The potato pulp, baked and then pureed, stands in beautifully for cheese. The lively color combination of this dish makes a lovely presentation.
