    I made this with chicken instead of shrimp because of my family preference and it was terrific. My kids ate every bit! I was worried that the tomatoes and spinach would taste wilted, but it was delicious and the flavors really worked together. - 11/14/07

  • Well, my son and I really enjoyed this recipe. My youngest son, on the other hand was not fond of the garlic and feta. And my 13 year old thought there to be "too many vegetables" in it. All in all, I think it went over well, and I WILL be making it again! - 1/8/11

  • I omitted the spinach because my husband won't eat it. He LOVED it and he is pickier than our kids. I can't wait to make this again. - 2/18/08

  • This was outstanding! I didn't have fresh oregano, so used dried and substituted blue cheese for the feta. My husband and I loved it and will definitely make it again. So healthy and delicious! - 2/13/08
