This recipe is great. I have made it before. The only thing I've done differently is add onion and mushrooms, saute before adding in the garlic then add in the greens. Sometimes I will add a little splash of fresh lemon juice and definitely use freshly ground sea salt. It make a huge difference in the taste. Delicious! Cecilia, San Antonio, TX
