I have been so excited to try this recipe--so many rave reviews. I was just a teensy bit disappointed but I can't exactly pinpoint why I felt that way. The family loved it. I'll definitely make it again, but I might try substituting half of the spinach with fresh basil. I will also add some garlic.

Pleasant taste and easy to put together. I don't care for spiniach so I used broccoli instead.
