MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 10, 2012

Looked forward to making this dish, but was quite disappointed in the results. Something about the tuna and spinach combination just didn't work well together. Definitely won't be making this again.

Made this tonight. It is simple and quick-had everything on hand. My picky husband loved it. Wants to take leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
