"Made this tonight. Was easy to prepare. We did think that there was too much spinach. Next time would reduce spinach amount and add some 'other' vegies - such as zucchini, celery. I think a clove of garlic would also improve the flavour. Would have this again with those minor changes. Very nice otherwise. Thanks for a lovely recipe."

"Instead of rosemary maybe basil, even fresh at this time. Or my favorite thing to use is LEMON PEPPEER blends. Goes with anything."

"I have not made this recipe yet, but I would like to know what herb could be replaced for the rosemary. I do not care for this herb. Judith"
