" What seemed to me, an unusual combination of ingredients provided a "Fantastic Tasting" dinner for DH and me. It's now a "New Favorite" for us. Basically, made exactly as written. I only used 1 Tb. chili-garlic sauce (mine is potent) and it was perfect for us. I needed to use the bag (9oz.) of spinach I had and used it all. This recipe is definitly worth trying and can't believe it wasn't reviewed before. Thank you Derf for this winner.
