This was great. Very easy, I also saw this on Everyday Itailan. Looks great sliced with the sauce drizzled over. I did add a bit of cornstarch to thicken up the sauce.
It was VERY salty. I used bullion cubes to make the broth. Next time I think I will not salt the spinach and use canned salt-free broth. My husband really liked it and it made for a good summer meal.
