    Made this when I had some friends over. I am not the cooking type but it was really easy to follow and it turned out lovely. I made it without the tomato and I used grated soya cheese instead of the feta cheese. It turned out really well and my guests enjoyed it. I will be definately making it again. Next time I might add some crushed garlic in with the spinach.  -  17 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made some serious modifications but it was a huge hit at a birthday party I had. 1)I left out the tomato sauce 2) I added garlic 3) I layered it in a casserole dish rather than made the little pockets.  -  02 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was super good with some modifications, the other reviewer is right in that it'd be quite bland as written. Our additions were some garlic and a tomatillo (a little beastie that looks like a small green tomato wrapped in lettuce leaves. uncooked, it tastes quite sour, but once cooked, it has just a little bite).  -  26 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
