      Simple and fast, but very tasty. I didn't have cherry tomatoes, so I cut up some Roma tomatoes instead. I kept the heat in the pan pretty low, so the spinach wilted, but didn't fall apart. Thanks for this quick weeknight recipe.

      Great way to use up some fresh spinach. Very easy to assemble with good flavor. :)

      This was excellent. I didn't have cherry tomatoes. Still good, and I'm not a fan of mixing fruits or nuts with my food so I skipped that too. Never the less I really enjoyed this and it will become a regular at my house
