"We enjoyed this easy to prepare recipe especially with the addition of the wine. Used two packages of spinach...enjoyed the leftovers, too in a fritatta. Will make this again."

"Since I am not a greens eater I was pleasantly surprised at how good this was. I was only making a small amount so I added more white wine and garlic than called for, I also added some minced onion and seasoned salt. I will definately make this again with spinach from my garden!"

"quick and easy. Perfect descriptions for this healthy little side. I served it with some Baked Salmon and it was the best match. It really complimented the very rich buttery tasting fish. I used White wine and I used fresh spinach. Very tasty and I think that the addition of the mushrooms is a great idea.

"This spinach recipe was good, just not great. I have other similar recipes that are a bit more flavorful that I will opt to make over this."

"I didn't really like this much. It really needed something so I added a dash of balsamic to it so it had a little more flavor. No big deal though."
