I made this for a party in August. It was a hit! I was hoping for leftovers but there were none to be had. I did make a few modifications. I cut up serval cherry tomatoes and omited the roasted red peppers - only because my sister doesn't like the peppers. Also, I didn't use an entire bag of the spinach. I put it in gradually as one of the last ingredients so it was more of a compliment igredient than a main ingredient. Several of my guests have requested the recipe!
