Absolutely full of flavour. Mixed cram cheese with pesto for some creamy texture/flavour. - 05 Oct 2012

Very very tasty! I used thawed frozen spinach which was fine, even a spinach hating teenager loved it! They come out huge, I made an extra one for my partner to take to work the following day and he ended up taking more because they are so,big and filling. A great meal, thank you! - 14 Apr 2015
