  • Easy and tasty! I halved the recipe but also halved the spinach and add kale. Also added a bit of garlic! - 7/20/10

  • I love this recipe! I make it all the time. The only thing that I change is to add an ounce of chopped jalapenos to the sauce. We like it spicy! I also eliminate the onion. Overall, awesome. - 10/10/09

    this recipe sounds like something I would make. I just wish that the recipes here told you how much is one serving! Kind of hard to divide this dish up by 6! It would be nice to know if a serving is 1/2 cup or 1 cup, etc. - 10/6/09

  • My husband, our guest and I really liked this. Just enough flavoring to be interesting and yet not spicy! - 9/2/09
