Really good and easy to make. I buy the frozen whole-leaf spinach, so that's what I used here. Since I have to have onions in everything, I added a bit of finely chooped onions. It's not too runny or too rich. It's got a nice pleasantly mild flavor. I'll be sure to make this again. Thanx for sharing!
