I love this dish. I'm always looking for something that is low in calories but full of flavor. I doubled the spinach and shallot mixture so that I did not have to add a side dish to this.

I have made this dish several times and will again tomorrow. It is one of our favorites and very easy to make and I also serve with rice or red potatoes. Yummy

This dish became one of my husband's favorite dishes and the first one he ever requested by name. It has really great flavors and we enjoy it served over a bed of rice.
