Popeye’s Pasta Bake

I love spinach.  Like a lot.  I put it in almost everything.  I usually buy those big tubs at Costco and throw handfuls of it in everything!  I also used to love watching Popeye when I was a kid.  Maybe that’s the reason I love spinach so much.  Who knows!  Either way, this one is dedicated to Popeye!
