"I halved the recipe, otherwise made as directed. Loved it! Even got my 3 year old to eat spinach and peppers which she will never even try. I thought the lemon pepper at the end was a must. Will for sure make this again!"

"This recipe is awesome! It has so much flavor, plus its low in fat. I did change a few things. Instead of butter I used olive oil to saute the onion, red pepper and celery. For the sauce I didn't have corn starch so in its place I used one can of fat-free cream of mushroom soup. Instead of the stuffing croutons I used italian-style breadcrumbs. Even with these changes the recipe tasted great. I highly recommend trying the Spinach-Stuffed Chicken Rolls."
