"I really enjoyed this recipe, it had a good flavor and it heated up well the next day as well. I used frozen broccoli instead of spinach, and it was still very tasty."

"Wow! I'm surprised at the differences in appeal of this dish. I LOVE IT!! But then, I love cheese stuffed maybe that's the thing. This was decadant and very yummy. I would make it for a party! But I could see where you may want to salt it if you're used to that...I'm used to a low salt diet so it did not bother me."

"I will add half the spinach next time--it was just too spinach-y for my taste. I also used grape tomatoes, and I thought it needed salt and pepper. Otherwise--great flavors."
