      Yummy! The kids loved it and actually requested that I make it again soon. They said it tasted like lasagna soup, and that's not a bad description, actually. I personally thought it could use a little more punch -- at least some garlic, maybe a bit of cayenne. Nonetheless, the spinach dumplings were novel and tasty and steamed up well despite my having to substitute shredded gouda for the parmesan since that's what I had on hand. Big kudos to anything that gets my kids to eat that much spinach voluntarily!
