This was a huge hit at my home. I followed the recipe exactly and it is perfect as well as healthy. We enjoyed the Spinach Crostini as one of our vegetable dishes with our dinner. I plan to make this as a (very attractive) appetizer the next time we have company as it is so tasty and looks very festive -- it would be perfect during the holidays as well as other occasions. Thank you Di Sharf for sharing this recipe!
