"I loved this recipe,but put it together in steps instead of using the all-in-one-dish style directions. Sauteed 1 1/2 yellow squash, 1/2 yellow onion instead of red & fresh spinach, then seasoned to taste. (Drain liquid from veggies) Left out the ground mustard due to personal preference. Added 2 cups COOKED rice & 2 Cups cubed deli turkey breast. (No water needed) Last reviewer said it was too soupy, so only added 2 heaping T of soup & 1T mayo. Stirred in 1/2 C shredded cheddar instead of the parmesan on top. Great flavor. Will definitely make again."

"I followed the recipe except I used chicken instead of turkey. Unfortunately it turned out more like a spinach dip with very little rice. I don't think I would make this recipe again, but if I did, I would use more rice to give it more substance. We ended up scooping the mixture into spinach and whole wheat tortillas, added some cheese and voila! We had spinach chicken burritos!"
