Very good! I took the other reviewer's advice and added onions and mushrooms and this was a very tasty dish. Quick to put together, savory and tasty. Valerie, Sugar Land, TX

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
