Top Review by Frankie Charlie

Very tasty, but I added a little more garlic- actually garlic powder at the end to kick it up a notch. Also, no need to cook the spinach separately. Just add it to the end of the mixture and put a lid on the saucepan. The spinach cooks quickly then puree it in the blender. Delish! Thanks for the recipe!
