Do I really need a Grands Biscuit and pasta at the same time? Won't the meat mixture do well in the biscuit without the pasta?

YUMMY! This is a GREAT quick and easy meal "idea". Those of us that are physically active and in relatively good health enjoy ideas like these. Rather than complain about the negative parts, I'll share my positive changes. Substitute chopped fresh broccoli for the spinach, add a little more garlic, and USE REDUCED FAT BISCUITS! Where there's a will, there's a way...

I have not made this nor will I as it is SO UNHEALTHY........almost 600 calories in ONE.......I'm sure there is a way to make these healthier. I am not trying to be critical, just my opinion. We all know how unhealthy transfats are. I am hoping that Pillsbury will come up with healthier recipes. We are a very unhealthy nation. Just my opinion. Please don't yell at me.

I made these according to the recipe with three exceptions. #1-I do not have a jumbo muffin tin so I cut each biscuit in half and made 16 cupcake size pies. #2-Since I was making them smaller I used mini penne pasta. #3-I used only about half the amount of spinach. My husband, our son and his friend, and I all loved them! The only change I will make next time is to either add more than one jar of alfredo, or I will heat extra up to drizzle over the finished pies before eating. This is an excellent recipe!

@ gen81465...I have to agree with you on the Trans fat! I haven't made this recipe yet, but I plan to change a few things to avoid the Trans fat. I will make my own Alfredo sauce and use bread stick dough rather than the biscuits. If you liked the taste, try changing it up a bit for a healthier version :)

Flavor is good & visual appeal is great; the only problem with this recipe is the nutritional facts: 4g of Trans Fats! I'd be better off feeding people a chunk of lard and a dozen twinkies.

This is GREAT! I made it for card club and everyone enjoyed it! I did struggle to keep the biscuits into the jumbo pan.. They kept slipping down ..I wonder if they could be assembled ahead of time and then baked before the guests arrive?? OR would they get soggy??

VERY yummy ~ please note, the VERY FIRST step is to cook & drain the UNcooked pasta. They turned out great & I was told I need to make them again very soon, LOL!

dont use pasta-when I made these, there was not enough liquid for the pasta to fully cook, I cheated and added some mid-cooking. I used thawed frozen creamed spinach, and a rotisserie chicken, and despite it taking a longer time to cook b/c of the pasta issue, these were really yummy! I used a regular muffin tray, and also used some (bigger) ramikins. I would recommend the latter. :)
