I really disliked this recipe and I love onions. Maybe I should have used arugula instead of spinach, but I doubt that would have made a difference. The flavors simply didn't blend well for me.

This dish was soooooo good. The only thing i would change is leave out the cheese and currants. The cheese just clumped up and stuck to the spinach.

The onions really make this a flavorful dish, and I used whole wheat linguine, so it was very healthy also.
