"I doubled the sauce recipe because it did not make much. This was a very mild flavored spinach recipe. I gave it three stars simply because I felt that I needed to doctor it up a lot. A good basic recipe to start with, but I felt that it needed more. It did pair nicely with the Lime Cilantro Tilapia recipe from this site."
