Leslie! This was sooooooooooooooooooo good! My Hubbie, never likes anything, but this, he took seconds! Can't wait to make again! We both devoured it! My only problem was since I was cooking for just two, I just threw in 2 handful's of Spinach and guessed at the butter and cream. Way to small of an amount! I forgot how spinach shrinks down. Thank you again, beautiful recipe!
