      I knew I would like this I love all the ingredients. I made as directed but didn't measure the spinach, just kept dumping it in till it looked right. It is very flavorful and satisfying. I used chicken broth and felt it added a lot of flavor. Maybe you could use vegetable broth but I wouldn't substitute that if you aren't vegetarian.

      This was wonderful. It would work as a vegetarian meal for my family. I followed the recipe exactly and wouldn't change anything!
