I really enjoy this recipe, very easy to make and looks reasonably impressive!

I too think that it's good but needs a bit of a kick as it wasn't as flavourful as i thought it would be. A bit too eggy perhaps, so next time will add some nutmeg to the spinach, add more onion, and whilst i liked the ricotta, i might add some pesto to it. The feta and sundried tomatoes combination sounds good too!

Easy and delicious. Make this as a Sunday Brunch for the family with a green salad w/ honey vinagrette.

Made this tonight as it looked yummy! It tasted fab but I changed a few things. I added chorizo and used mozzarella instead of ricotta. I also used a lot of seasoning for the egg but it still didn't overpower the dish!

A lovely recipe and very easy to make. I read the previous comments and took on board everything said, therefore I swapped ricotta for feta (as that's all I had), roasted the toms, cooked in chili oil to add a little heat, wilted the spinach in a pan then placed in the bottom of the dish, I also added mushrooms. It was very tasty and I shall definitely be cooking this again. Thank you :-)

Made as a starter tonight. Nice but would maybe try a stronger cheese next time.

Mmm.. I'm now thinking Prosciutto would compliment this better than Chorizo!
