I loved this! I followed the recipe and spread it onto a homemade tostada. Next time I will add more garlic. Thanks for a quick and easy dip/spread. Read More

Easy? Yes. Tasty? No. I didn't like this one single bit. After it was blended it looked like a jar of spinach baby food. I was way to embarrased to even bring it to my family for Thanksgiving Dinner based on looks of the dip all together. I ended up having to go to the store to buy something to bring. If I try again I might try mashing the garlic and chopping the spinach and mixing all the ingredients together instead of blending. Read More

I am making this one again for tonight. It is delicious - the roasted garlic is key! I did substitute a little feta cheese only because I was out of the Romano. The spinach does cook down quite a bit so if you need a bigger batch then definitely double or triple the recipe Read More
