"The dried thyme overpowered the entire dish, I would skip it altogether when I make it again."

"I would give this recipe a 3 and my husband would give it a 5, so average is a 4. My husband really liked it obviously, but the "sauce" wasn't what I was expecting. I guess it was just too vinegar-y for me. It's hard to put my finger on. I also thought that it made a lot, more than 4 servings. Also, I couldn't get 4 cups of fresh spinach to even fit in the pan with everything else, so I only used about 2.5 - 3. Still looked like the picture above. I think next time I'll add in the green pepper and garlic that someone mentioned and see if I like it better."

"Easy and delicious"

"This recipe was super easy to make and it tasted delicious!! I was concerned about using apple cider vinegar, but you couldn't taste it. I used regular yellow mustard because that's all I had on hand. You couldn't taste the mustard either. I had a little piece of green pepper that I sauteed with the red onion. Oh, I also used the vegan Kielbasa that comes four in a package and a packet of crushed red peppers and a few dashes of granulated garlic powder. I have already e-mailed this recipe to my Mom. I will make this again. The taste was great!"
