    OMG!! This was great!! I added more garlic though. On my first serving I added mozzarella and red crush pepper on top, it was finger licking good! On my second serving I added hot sauce on top! Oh my! Oh my!! I just loved it! I would definitely make this recipe again and again! Thanks for sharing! - 11/10/08

    I made this like recipe, adding a can of diced tomatoes and 4 servings of cooked orzo pasta. I mixed it all together and dressed with more lemon juice and EVOO. I could have fed an army with all the food it made, I'll be eating it for a week. Good thing it was absolutely delicious!! - 3/11/09

    I really like this dish - I love spinach and the chick peas make it a protein-rich meal that is quite filling and satisfying. I added green, red, and yellow bell peppers and tomatoes (cleaning out the fridge :) as well as some Frank's Red Hot sauce. Very good! Thank you :) - 1/10/09

    We love Spinach. The nice thing about this quick recipe is that you can alter it to fit any ethic food. Add cumin ans seasme it becomes Mid Eastern, Seasme Ginger (Ken's) & some Mung bean sprouts it becomes Asian. Add italian or Ceasar dressing. You get my point, this dish is a very flexible base. - 10/31/08

    It was a very good dish, my dh and I enjoyed it. Next time I make it I will add more garlic and some hot pepper flakes though. I think I will switch it up another time and try the canned tomatoes and feta. A very versatile dish :) - 4/28/09
