  • This was delicious! I used 2 gloves of garlic (because I love it) and substituted sunflower seeds for pine nuts because I didn't have any. I will be making this again though. What a great way to use up spinach without making yet another salad! - 8/18/11

  • My hubby even thinks it's very good. It's good on a sandwich and I'm sure it would be good on pasta and maybe even on top of some eggs. I had a lot of spinach to use up so I thought I'd try this and I'm glad I did. - 7/31/10
