    Took to long to prepare for such a little flavor.

    My husband and I liked this fairly well, but we both thought that there was too much spinach in it. Next time I will probably use about 1/2 the spinach. We're not big fans of parmesan so I used a monterey jack and cheddar blend and the dish turned out pretty good.

    Very nice, healthy dish! I used drained canned tomatoes because I didn't have fresh on hand. I sprinkled a little crushed red pepper flakes in too. Will make this again. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

    We liked the flavor of this - me - very much so. But I felt there was something missing. I used fresh basil and a little dried, and I used fresh shredded spinach rather than frozen. Whenever I handle the frozen, my hands turn beet-red and itch - but never mind! To me, there was just something missing, but I will review again, when I make it again. It was very easy to put together. Thanks!
