"This was good. I found that the spinach was a bit oily cooked with 4 tsp of oil. When I make this again I will cut the oil and add more seasonings. We found it to be a bit bland. I served it with carrots and mashed butternut squash."

"Enjoyed this very much! I did tweak the recipe using lemon rather than lime juic, cajun seasoning and gruyere cheese both in the spinach mixture and on top. A good recipe to be creative with!"

"Very very good! I didn't have garlic herb seasoning on hand so I just used Italian seasoning instead and it turned out great. I also sprinkled some italian seasoning and garlic powder into the ricotta mix. Was so good! My DH has been on a spinach kick so I think this recipe will become a fav!"

"So simple to make and very tasty. I thought it would turn out too dry, but it was just perfect. I used a steamed back of spinach instead and used just enough to get a good mixture of it."

"Amazing! Just make sure you squeeze the water out of the spinach. I just put the spinach in without squeezing the water out and the dish was too watery. I should know better! But a dish that both me and my eight year old love!!"
