    This was yummy but I did change the proportions a bit. For one bunch of greens I used 3 oz. of cheese, one tablespoon of butter and doubled the spices. I also chopped the greens before I cooked them. We ate them warm. - 3/19/10

    This really is delicious. I recommend using just a pinch of cayenne so as not to overpower the other spices -- and it's still really delicious without the cayenne at all, if you're not into spicy food. Clarified butter is really good with this (as the original receipe suggests), but you'll need salt - 8/27/10
