  • “Made this as a vegetarian side dish and served it with Lemon & Garlic Grilled Chicken Breasts (Recipe222713).SCRUMPTIOUS!”

  • “My husband loved this and he is a picky eater at times. I did, too. I did add some smoked ham slices, chopped. I had no pine nuts so i used pecans. The nutmag is wonderful! This is a keeper.”

  • “This was totally delicious. I didn’t add the garlic as I can’t have any at the moment, but I loved it. The only thing I will change next time is to roast the pine nuts first. But there’ll certainly be a next time!”

  • “Very nice side dish!My DH & and thoroughly enjoyed it.I toasted the pine nuts in the oven before adding to the spinach.Other than this very small modification, I followed the recipe very closely.Thanks BonnieZ for this very tasty recipe.”
