Since my DH won't usually eat cooked spinach, I halved the recipe. Please do finely chop your onion or grate it (reserving the juice in case you need it). I'd also pop the stuffing into a food processor after measuring. Using that much cayenne and Creole seasoning seemed to mask the parmesan flavor (which I did not cut in half as I like it so well). I would make it again with about half of the heat. Thank you Ranelle!
