The Finished Product
This was way better than I thought it would be. My pickiest eaters had seconds. I'll have to double it next time. It had such great flavor, I wish there were some leftovers. It is fairly light too, no heavy sauce, and I love cooking with spinach. When I was a kid, I thought Popeye was crazy. Who knew he was actually a genius? This will go into my tried and true file. Grade A-.
