I haven't made a souffle for ages. This was a welcome reintroduction. Easy to prepare and easy on the calories as well. Thanks again Bergy.

Good on its own but a little RedHot adds a nice touch.

Really very good -- even though it fell and burned a little... Since other reviewers mentioned the lack of taste,I added onion, garlic and dill to the spinach mixure. I will absolutely make this again!!! Updated 1/07: I was commissioned to make a veggie dish for Christmas dinner, and my whole family was very impressed by this. I doubled the recipe and between seven adults the two souffles were just about gone. Thanks again!
