      I made the recipe as written without the cheese. I'm glad I did. DH needed to "kit" it up with some hot sauce and thought it would be better without the spinach. It's also too dry. It's a good recipe and I would like to play with it. I have the manchego cheese. It will be a plus for this recipe.
