      I liked it more before adding the spinach and that's kind of funny coz I love spinach. I think it was the garlic, which was overpowered after adding the greens. Two tablespoons of oil were enough for me. Great dish, full of proteins, iron,etc.Next time I'll make it without the spinach.

      My husband and I had this one evening for dinner. I had a lot of fresh spinach in the fridge so I used that instead of frozen. Turned out great! Thanks for posting!
