    Excellent - Restaurant quality. I did add sausage as I had some left over and doubled the amount of mushrooms. Thank you for sharing.  -  24 Mar 2010


    I have been making this recipe for many years now and it still remains my all time favorite! One thing I can't stress MUST use a GOOD quality feta. The kind you get in a grocery store just doesn't have enough flavor. I'm lucky enough to have a Greek deli nearby that offers excellent feta. I also double the amount of spinach and always add extra garlic and red pepper flakes. If you'd like it a bit more hearty, try adding chicken tenderloins, cut up and sauteed.  -  17 Oct 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
