We enjoyed this Bergy, just found it a bit thin when the spinach released its moisture, so removed the lid for more like 20 minutes to allow it to thicken. It had good flavour once it had reduced. *I'm editing this as I also remembered we reduced the amount of oil in the recipe to 8 teaspoons rather than the 8 tablespoons as suggested.
