I have been making this recipe for many years now and it still remains my all time favorite! One thing I can't stress enough...you 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. Read More

Yuck. This did not work at all. I don t know what went wrong but it tasted just awful. Perhaps I used the wrong kind of mushrooms I think if you cut them out of the recipe it might be okay but I wasn t big on the melted feta would add that as a topping to keep its crumbly consistency instead.

OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! This was such a delicious and easy recipe. I only used half the feta b/c my husband doesn't really care for it, but without knowing what was in it, he agreed it was was good so next time I will use the whole amount of feta. I also used extra spinach and next time will use a little more. I literally threw this together in no time and then added some medium shrimp during the last few minutes. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS MEAL!!! Read More

I am newly married & just learning to cook. I'm always on the lookout for things that are relatively easy and taste great, too. This recipe definitely fit the bill! My husband loved it and the leftovers were even better the next day. I only had 4 oz of feta, but I added 4 oz of mozzarella and it was outstanding. Also added an entire bag of baby spinach, as it does cook down a lot. Thanks for an awesome recipe! Read More

This recipe surprised me. I really liked it. I'm not a fan of tomatoes, so I wasn't sure. The feta mixed in so nicely with everything to create a light and creamy sauce with a great flavor. And despite the amount of tomatoes, they didn't overpower the flavor at all. I highly recommend this one. Read More

The recipe was good but cooked tomatoes get so mushy. Instead I sauteed the onions/garlic/mushrooms and left the spinach/tomatoes/feta uncooked and mixed them in afterwards. Turned out very good and was really fresh tasting because of the uncooked portion. The spinach became tender from the residual heat but wasn't mush and the tomatoes kept their firmness but still released their juices. All in all it was very good. Would make it again for sure.

this is a real keeper! thank you suki. i liked all of the ingredients so i figured i would like the finished product but had no idea just how good and easy this dish would be. the melting feta makes it. i am not a stickler for measuring...and changed the amounts of the ingredients (more spinach and more garlic) and it was fabulous. i listened to the advice of another reviewer and made it again the other night as a main dish by adding chicken sausage. my husband loved it.
