Made as per recipe though I think our frozen spinach which weighed 250 grams (just under 9 ounces) is different to yours as it did not need chopping as it was already finely chopped. I quite enjoyed the dish though the DH was not a fan and found the mushrooms slimy but liked the flavour of the dish. Thank you Sue Law made for What's on the Menue tag game at FF&F.
