  1. This soufflé was absolutely delicious! I added a minced shallot and coated the ramekin with additional parmesan otherwise followed the recipe exactly.
  2. This was a very delicious souffle! The fresh spinach really made this dish - so fresh tasting. I did cheat on one thing though -- I cooked the souffle in one dish vs. the individual ramekins. It came out perfectly. It does take some time to make this dish, but the effort is well worth the end result. Made for PRMR tag, January, 2013.
