    I looked at this recipe but it doesn't say where or when to use the Quinoa. Does it go into the mixture then into the oven OR is it used on the side OR something else?? It looks really good! - 9/18/10

  • I've had a box of quinoa for a few months; I had just ran out of ideas on how I could use it to prepare a tasty dish. This receipe sounds like the perfect opportunity to use the quinoa on. I like spinach...I like festa..I'm going shopping and plan on preparing it this weekend. Thanks! - 5/17/08
