"This is a quick and easy side dish I made up to complement any fish or chicken dish with spinach, diced tomatoes, and that rich Roquefort cheese (any blue cheese will work)."

YUM YUM! Based on prior reveiws, I sauteed the onion w/garlic & baby bellas, then added about 3/4's of a can of diced tomatoes and the spinach. Tossed w/blue cheese just prior to serving. The only change I will make is I will use less blue cheese next time; it tasted great, but it's strong enough I can cut some fat/calories w/out sacrificing taste. What a great, easy, healthy, inexpensive side dish! Thanks for a new staple at our house.


I used about 3/4 package of fresh spinach, chopped, and used parmesan and pinenuts, as another reviewer suggested. I thought it was really good!


I just made this and must say it was delicious! I used the diced tomatoes with green chilis mild version and switched out the blue cheese for feta (just sounded better). This is a quick and easy dish that tastes great. Highly recommended!
