"We don't have problems with sodium, but I can my own tomatoes, so I used them. Aldo used game sausage. I have to say this was lovely. Fresh spinach made the dish perfect for us. Thanks for submitting this. Will make it again."
"QUESTION- CAN YOU USE FRESH SPINACH INSTEAD OF FROZEN? IF SO WHEN WOULD YOU ADD IT? HAVEN'T MADE BUT SOUNDS GOOD AND PLAN ON MAKING IT. THANKS GOOD"
