    Used different ingredients. While easy to prepare, this was lacking something. I added a lot of garlic powder but it still needed salt, pepper and then I finally added bacon. Won't be making again.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Quick, easy, and tasty. I used a LOT of garlic powder to get it to taste the way I wanted it to, so maybe minced fresh garlic would be a better choice for people who like a lot of flavour. This is going to replace my normal, boring spinach at the dinner table from now on.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Made it more kid friendly. I love this recipe! Since my girls don't like mushrooms, I have replaced them with carrots sliced thin so they cook at the same rate as the onion. I also added basil and oregano to give it more flavour... but not too much - you don't want to over-power the spinach.  -  29 Sep 2008
