"I thought I would not like this recipe. My husbsnd said it sounded good. I made it and we both loved the combination. It was a little hot because I used cayanne pepper and add a little too much."

"Does anyone have an easy way to squeeze the liquid out of the thawed spinach. I love recipes with spinach but dread the squeezing part. It seems like you can never get all the liquid out. Thanks"
