"I made a double batch of this and brought some over to my parents. Very simple and delicious. Melts in your mouth. This is a keeper. Will make again and again. I did add one slice of American cheese to the sauce."

"i am trying to introduce fish into the family diet. I was looking for a different type of fish in the market, but came home with this instead. I didn't have the frozen spinach, but a bag of fresh. So we made the fish as directed, and made a spinach salad on the side! It was quick, simple, and every one cleaned their plates. Thanks for yet another simple meal!! :)"
