I made as directed, and this was just perfect for two. I added some red pepper flakes for spice, but really it was wonderful as written. Thanks.
A great way to use up spinach! I used 1 T oil and 1 T butter and added some red pepper flakes. Thanks for sharing!
Wonderful!!! What's not to like that has garlic in it...made as directed and served it with Egyptian Spiced Prawns#414980 and jasmine rice. Everyone loved our lunch. Thank you. Made for Spring into Spring with Garlic and Soy Tag Game 2011.
