I made this for Christmas Eve dinner, and it was FABULOUS!!!! My husband loved it, and he's not a big fan of my cooking! ? That proves this recipe is the real deal. I did use vegetable broth instead of 3 cups of water, and put about 14 fresh spinach leaves in at the last minute. Will definitely make this many times in the future.
