    JustJanS's Note:

    This comes from a Spanish cookbook I own. I have made it using about 1/2 cup of jarred, roasted, marinated bell pepper strips instead of the pimientos mentioned, and that worked well. And yes, it is 11 cups of spinach-it cooks away so much!

      What fantastic flavours and texture! We used normal spinach as we had a heap in the garden - other than that made as stated. Will be appearing on my table again very soon. Thanks for a great recipe!

      This was really good! Very rich and filling. I added about 5 cups more spinach to make a more balanced carb/protein dish and it came out fine. Adding about 1/2 c broth chicken or vegetable makes it more of a stew which I liked very much. Thanks!
