    What's a Dutch Oven? I don't think I have one. Can I use a pan?

    Very good. Amazing how much it cooks down. I made half a recipe for 2 people and we each ended up with maybe slightly more than half a cup on our plates!

    This was great! I did use half olive oil and half butter but otherwise I followed the directions. So easy and soooo tasty! Served this along with recipe#475174#475174 and brown rice. Made for 20`2 Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.

    YUM! This is the perfect 'formula' for sauteed spinach. I have made other recipes, and my husband wouldn't touch them. This recipe has my husband FINALLY eating sauteed spinach. I made only one bunch of spinach (10 ounces) tonight thinking it was just for me, since he didn't really like any of the other attempts. He tried it and took half my spinach! He usually doesn't like lemon juice, but it was a great addition to this recipe. This is now a regular side dish rotation for various dinners.

    I use the same recipe. Love it. I substitue red wine vinegar for the lemon juice if I don't have a lemon.
