"This was good. I found that the spinach was a bit oily cooked with 4 tsp of oil. When I make this again I will cut the oil and add more seasonings. We found it to be a bit bland. I served it with carrots and mashed butternut squash."

"Enjoyed this very much! I did tweak the recipe using lemon rather than lime juic, cajun seasoning and gruyere cheese both in the spinach mixture and on top. A good recipe to be creative with!"

"Very very good! I didn't have garlic herb seasoning on hand so I just used Italian seasoning instead and it turned out great. I also sprinkled some italian seasoning and garlic powder into the ricotta mix. Was so good! My DH has been on a spinach kick so I think this recipe will become a fav!"
