    Made this tonight. Was easy to prepare. We did think that there was too much spinach. Next time would reduce spinach amount and add some 'other' vegies - such as zucchini, celery. I think a clove of garlic would also improve the flavour. Would have this again with those minor changes. Very nice otherwise. Thanks for a lovely recipe.

    Instead of rosemary maybe basil, even fresh at this time. Or my favorite thing to use is LEMON PEPPEER blends. Goes with anything.

    I have not made this recipe yet, but I would like to know what herb could be replaced for the rosemary. I do not care for this herb. Judith
