I've been making this recipe for years now. I was going to post it and found that it was already here. I usually use a wild rice mix (Uncle Ben's or Carolina). I prepare that, set it aside, and add it at the end. I also like to add more than the 3 cups of fresh spinach. This is a definite keeper and a staple in our home.
