Made this tonight. I could only fit 1/2 pound of spinach in the baking pan, so I sauteed the rest. The recipe called for mushrooms, but didn't mention them in the procedure so I added them in the saute and in the baking pan. Instead of garlic powder, I used fresh chopped garlic. I also used hake as the fish. This was very tasty and I would make it again!
Loved it, so did hubby. We are huge garlic fans so I added some finely chopped garlic to the spinach. The sauce over it was absolutely out of this world. Will be making this again! Great recipe. Thanks!
