this is really good. i added some fresh bacon bits to it too. the only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because the lemon flavor is kinda lost. i would say it probably needs a fresh lemon squeezed over it to give it that zing that would make it fab. I only have limes so im thinking of adding a freshly squeezed lime to it.

This was pretty good. As another commenter said, there wasn't really much lemon flavor. A bit of lemon juice might help brighten it up.

We loved it. A nice cool, summer time dinner.

I prepared this recipe for my housewarming and it was awesome. I also added chopped black olives and eliminated the onions due to allergies and it turned out just as good.

WASN'T THE TASTE I WAS EXPECTING! This dish was really good...but, for a summer dish, it wasn't what I expected! Had more of a warm winter taste to it, than a fresh summer taste!! I didn't have and spinach, as a replacement I added diced up sauteed shrimp!! I thought it that it tasted better than the spinach!

This recipe was wonderful! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because we could not find the right cooking cream. 4 grocery stores later, we're wasting a lot of time and gas. So we found a garlic cooking cream by the same maker (Philly), and used that. It was delicious! ....... Therefore, we loved what we made, but I'd like to try it again the way the recipe says. Chop the onion really small so it doesn't create horrible dragon-breath. By the 2nd day, the flavors had mellowed and melded. Yum!
