Reviews for Spinach Cheese Enchiladas
"This recipe makes too much for my family of 4 to eat in one meal, so I divide it between 2 smaller pans and freeze one for later. I've found this works best if you use the regular ricotta cheese (not the reduced fat) - otherwise, it is good enough to eat twice!"
"I made this recipe when it was first published in Quick Cooking several years ago and it is AWESOME!! I have made it many times since then and my family loves it (even though we don't normally go for vegetarian entrees). I also usually add like 50% more spinach that it calls for."
"Made this last night, hubby and I both loved it. It feels more like Italian than Mexican...but it's very good."
