    This was good; it turned out a little juicier than I would have liked. It seemed as though it needed something else on top, maybe some bread crumbs. I would make this again but modify a little I think.

    We really enjoyed this dish. Like Chia I also added garlic. Served this with a tomato salad, crusty bread and of course the wine like you suggested!

    very nice and simple dish, yet looks like alot more work than it really is. i had to add some garlic to the spinach, but that's my palate- 5 stars!
