I halved the recipe and instead of fresh spinach, I used the other half of the frozen spinach from last night. This was OK, but sort of bland. I even used a little salt and pepper that wasn't in the recipe. Like I said, this was OK but I probably won't be making it again. I did like the fact it was prepared entirely with the microwave so I didn't have to heat up the house.
