Reviews for Spinach and Mushrooms
"I am not a fan of spinach, but it ended up being the part of the dish me and my family devoured! I omitted the water chestnuts and added 1 slice of crumbled bacon. I had to make a second batch because my 12 yr. old ate nearly the whole pan before I could serve it. I will add to my favorites list!"
"I was also excited to try this, the picture looked good but it wasn't. Very plain, not much flavor at all, disappointed."
"I was excited to try this, but I didn't like the taste of it. I thought the Worcestershire sauce might have been a typo. I might try making it again but using soy sauce instead of the Worcestershire sauce or maybe omitting the sauce all together."
