I came up with this recipe one night when I was improvising with what I had on hand. I love to make simple, healthful, one-dish meals with lots of vegetables. Feta and Greek olives give this one a depth of flavor people seem to love! —Donna Jesser, Everett, Washington

"Very good! I doubled the spinach because it didn't seem like enough, and it worked out well. Next time I'll cut the sausage a little thinner but I'll definitely make this again."

"Was delicious. I made it for two and we got a couple of meals out of it. I used black olives because I am not a huge fan of olives, but I can stand black olives mixed with other things. It was well-like and I am going to make it again."

"Easy and pretty tasty. The texture was a little weird for me though. Very meaty."
