Ingredients
  • 2 (10-ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach
  • 6 chicken breast halves (about 4 pounds), cooked, boned, and shredded
  • 2 (10 3/4-ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cup grated sharp Cheddar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons butter
Directions

Remove the outer wrappers from the box of spinach. Open 1 end of each box. Microwave on full power for 2 minutes, until thawed. Drain the spinach and put into a large bowl. Add the shredded chicken.

In a medium bowl, combine the soup, mayonnaise, sour cream, Cheddar, lemon juice, curry powder, salt and pepper, to taste, and wine. Whisk together to make a sauce. Pour the sauce over the spinach and chicken. Mix well with a spatula.

Place the mixture into an 11 by 7-inch casserole dish or 2 (9-inch) square disposable aluminum foil pans that have been sprayed with vegetable oil cooking spray. Pat down evenly and smooth with a spatula. Combine the Parmesan and bread crumbs and sprinkle over the top. Dot with the butter.

Wrap the uncooked casserole securely with plastic wrap, then with aluminum foil. Place each pan into a plastic freezer bag and seal. Place into freezer.

Allow casserole to thaw 24 hours in refrigerator. When ready to bake, remove the plastic wrap and foil. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes until bubbly.

Delicious, however I used 1 can of soup, 1 cup reduced fat sour cream and 1 cup reduced fat mayo. I also added one small can of mushrooms,thinly sliced green onions and 1 tbsp minced garlic. I also used a rotisserie chicken I had left over...This is my second time making it, in my opinion the first time with the original recipe it was so soupy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Me and my roommates loved this dish! i accidentally totally forgot to put the wine in and i had it in my counter! i loved the dish however i think half the amount of curry would be much better! the taste is strong but a little too strong. I WILL BE MAKING THIS AGAIN :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Horrible. This is not Chicken Florentine! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't know, but I thought this was pretty bad. I think the curry powder was the wrong choice of spice in this dish. I don't mind indulging in rich and fattening recipes once in a while, but the flavor has to be well worth it, and this didn't do it for me :-( item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious and easy to make. I subbed Marsala wine and fresh spinach and added a can of mushrooms. I also added some fresh basil and crushed garlic for extra seasoning. I cut the recipe in half since just my husband and I would be eating it and it still made a large casserole dish. I subbed Panko after reading the reviews. Omitted sour cream since I didn't have any and I don't think the recipe really needs it. Used reduced fat cheddar and cream of mushroom and can't tell the difference. Served over brown rice. I would definitely make this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just made this the other day and it was liked by everyone in my family. We had some smoke gouda cheese to use up, so we used 1/2 gouda and 1/2 cheddar , which turned out really well. Also, I used panko instead of the fresh bread crumbs, I think the idea is to get them crisp anyways so I figured it wouldn't be a problem. Will definately make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family absolutely loves this recipe. If using the full recipe this dish is HUGE. I have a family of four and cutting this recipe in half still makes plenty with some leftover. The only thing I really change is to use panko bread crumbs mixed with the cheese on top and omit the butter on top. I find that this gives a crunchier topping and cuts a tiny bit of fat in this already very rich dish. Served over rice this makes an awesome meal. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Paula is right. You can't have too much cheese in this recipe. I made some adjustments by adding mushrooms, garlic salt and egg noodles with 2 1/2 cup of cheese. Also I substitute wheat germ for bread crumbs. Delish!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this reciepe! I used fresh spinach instead of frozen and not quite as much as the reciepe calls for. It is great for a cold winter day, warm and comforting. If you are not a fan of curry try substituting it with garlic powder. Beware though it is very rich : item not reviewed by moderator and published

Delicious! Substituted left over Thanksgiving turkey for the chicken and cut the recipe in half since I was serving just 2 for dinner. Left overs of this dish are even better! Thanks, Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Paula, such a great recipe but I did a few changes to fit what my mother of 92 years old would like in her food. I did not use the curry instead added garlic powder. Added zucchini, onions, carrots fresh spinach and walnut for crunch and added crackers to the toppings. Thanks for a wonderful recipe! I don't understand the negative reviews cause I followed your recipe to the T and it was wonderful! The recipe is a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I saw this episode a week ago and it looked amazing as well as easy. Aside from picking the chicken, it was! I had read that this dish was not great to eat as a casserole (as OD does on the show, so I cooked half a box of angel hair, added a little olive oil and lemon juice, and we ate the dish as a pasta. The only alteration I made to the recipe was to eliminate the curry. I added salt and fresh pepper to taste and took a bite of the sauce before I mixed everything together and decided I liked the flavor by itself. I think leaving out the curry really allowed for the flavor from the wine - delicious. My husband told me to put this dish in my top 5, so he loved it. I would do everything exactly the same next time, except I would probably half the recipe. If you add it to pasta, you could eat this for days and days! We both went back for seconds and barely put a dent in it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Bleah, my family didn't like this at all! I even served it with bow tie pasta. The biggest complaint was there was too much spinach which had over cooked in the 30 minutes in the oven. It MIGHT be better with fresh spinach instead. Even with that slight change, the sauce was overly thick and entirely too rich. My family asked me not to make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved it .Was vary good i will cook it again my family loved it i even forgot to put the butter on it and it was still vary vary good . item not reviewed by moderator and published
ok so I didn't like this recipe, but my better half loved it. So this one is a tossup. Not sure if your suppose to eat this by itself or not. I didn't like the whole texture of it, flavor was ok. I really should have cut this recipe in half before I made it because it makes way more than anyone could eat in a week. item not reviewed by moderator and published
yuck! My family did not like this at all. Just did not taste good. I followed directions exactly. I threw it away. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I altered the dish to the things I had at home. Instead of white wine I used a little chicken stock and I left out the curry completely. I also didn't have sour cream so I used half real mayo and half miracle whip for a little tang. I didn't have lemon either, but if I make it again I would definitely add some lemon juice to help cut the richness. It came out really good for how much I changed it and for it being the first time I've ever made it! : item not reviewed by moderator and published
Everyone in the family including the children liked this recipe. I will cut back on the curry next time. They ate it up! I would serve it with the white table wine. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe! I actually use boneless, skinless chicken thighs and breast tenderloins. I also add egg noodles to make it more of a casserole. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish is awesome, but Ive had to alter it a little. There is a little too much sauce and if you dont let it set for a long time before you bake it, all the sauce stays on top. I mixed a little of the sauce with the chicken then mixed some of it in with the spinach. That way the flavor is in the entire casserole. I usually have alot of sauce left over when Im finished. This recipe is great for dinner at home, pot lucks, taking to friends in bereavement or mom's that have just had a baby! item not reviewed by moderator and published
OMG! I loved this recipe and I don't like spinach ! I will make this a lot! I even got the kids to eat just used a little more cheese. So Yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published

YUMMY!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family loved this dish. The wine and the curry give it a "not your average casserole" flavor. I don't understand the negative reviews. It had a great consistency. I substituted a roasted chicken from the grocery store and followed the rest of the recipe. Great as leftovers -- it does make a lot for a family of three. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I absolutely love curry flavored anything, so I decided to try this recipe and it was a big success. I do serve the florentine over some type of pasta. The only thing my husband changed was substituting cream of chicken soup for the mayo... he just didn't like the mayo w/sour cream combination. We are always looking for new chicken recipes and this one is a hit! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I agreed....the dish is very tasty (rich but we felt that it was kind of "soupy", and therefore would make an AWESOME topping (sauce for egg noodles or on a bed of rice. Not for the diet-conscious, for sure! It does not "present" well, meaning I would've been embarrassed to serve this to guests, it just ain't purty! Final comment....make it for the family and serve over noodles, rice, or even a few spoonfuls over a baked potato would be awesome. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm with the previous reviewer, the negative reviews really are crazy. Although I made some substitutes as most of us do, the result was still a great weeknight meal. I used rotisserie chicken, cream of chicken soup and panko bread crumbs. What a great way to get some spinach in your diet! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read the reviews before making this dish and I think you negative people are crazy!!! Maybe you all should learn how to follow directions or learn how to cook! My husband raved about this dish! By itself it would be a little rich, so I served it over egg noddles and it was awesome! It was not runny at all, it set up perfectly! I will totally suggest this recipe to my friends and family! Thanks Paula you did it again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family loved this, even the grandkids! Throw a salad and rolls with it and it's perfect for after work when you don't have a lot of time before Soccer and Chearleading practices! I like to fix it the night before put it in the frig and pop it in the oven when we all get home. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I couldn't get past the fattiness saturating the whole thing. C'mon- 2 cans of condensed cream soup, a cup of mayo, a cup of sour cream, 2 cups of cheddar, half cup of parmesan- Paula always seems to get her taste from burying everything in dairy fat. Enough already. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious!!! I've made this dish several times and someone always asks for the recipe. It serves 8 - 10 people and is an excellent dish for a family gathering!! The curry is such a nice compliment to the dish. Thanks Paula for another winning recipe!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was a little hesitant to try this recipe after reading the reviews, but I saw a rerun of Paula's show, and it looked too good to pass up. I was pleasantly surprised! Only switch I made was use Panko bread crumbs because I love the crunch! Don't be afraid to give this one a try because of the reviews, especially if you are a casserole lover. Love it!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was the nastiest thing I've ever eaten!!! I was so excited to make it for my family because it looked delicious on TV but once I took that first bite I was disgusted and about threw it right back up. I am forever scarred by this dish and will never trust Food Network again to get recipes...... item not reviewed by moderator and published
This casserole was a big disappointment! It looked so good on TV, that I immediately went to store for ingredients. The only change I made was the addition of portabello mushrooms, otherwise went exactly by the recipe, concerned there was no binder such as an egg. It looked bubbly, tasted okay, but even after allowing it to cool did not set up as a casserole and looked sloppy when serving. Besides cutting back the soup, I would use panko crumbs mixed with butter and cheddar for crisp without the bitter of parmesan. There was no mention of serving this "over" anything. I may make again with changes but this one was an expensive throw out I couldn't save. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I knew this was a hit when after his second bite my husband asked if there would be any leftovers. I made a half batch and added sauted sliced portobello mushrooms. It did not need to be served over rice or pasta. I simply added a side of fresh confetti corn, but carrots would look nice also. Thank you Paula for another family favorite! item not reviewed by moderator and published
good...and of course you would use either rice or pasta... item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe is AWESOME! I usually serve it over egg noodles. Also, sometimes, depending on what I have in the freezer, I use one box of spinach and one of broccoli. I have made it with all broccoli and that is delicious too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so gross. Did I miss something? Was it supposed to be served over pasta? We couldn't eat it plain, it's very rich and needs to be served over pasta or rice. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm not a big fan of curry and after the first bite, I wrapped up the rest and gave it away. If you don't like curry or are only fond of it, DO NOT EAT THIS DISH!! Very strong curry taste, smell, it overtook the entire dish. I'll make it again with NO curry and use garlic! I'll also add more mushrooms. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not the one to write reviews . Tried it, it was CRAPPY mac n cheese would have made a better meal :\ item not reviewed by moderator and published
this casserole is absolutely delicious. every time i try to make something that i saw on tv it turns out not so great. but this was seriously AWESOME. i only made a half batch and it fed 4 people with plenty of leftovers. i will definitely be making this again! love you paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Big fan of this recipe. I have made it many times and usually omit any added salt as there is enough in the soup. Curry flavour is pronounced but I love it and do not find it overwhelming at all. For those who complain about the richness... it's a Paula recipe, what did you expect? Definitely not an every week meal but great for a treat. As usual, you can't go wrong with Paula. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great dish to take to someone because they are busy. It has a good flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent! We served it over brown rice. I don't normally care for curry, but it was great in this dish. I didn't have the soup, so I made a white sauce. Also I used fresh spinach instead and wilted it down in the white sauce. Finally, I only had Romano cheese, so I used that instead. Everything else I did was exact. The only problem I found, and this may have been because I used Romano, was that the Romano was overly done. I mean, it was very overdone. Otherwise this was amazing good and simple. My family ate it up. This will be fixed again and again in the future. Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It took a little longer than billed but it is tasty. I cut the recipe in half and still fed four people with leftovers. item not reviewed by moderator and published
An absolute winner ! Family love it ! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have eaten this dish before with mushrooms and loved it.Here I substituted 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup for the mayo and switched heavy cream for the sour cream.I did not use bread crumbs but used sliced fresh mushrooms instead and also used fresh Parmesan cheese on top.I cut my chicken into bite size pieces to make it easier to eat and mixed them with the spinach,then added that to my sauteed shallots,garlic and mushrooms. As a nice finishing touch I placed my entire dish in a casserole dish and placed it under my broiler to allow the cheese to melt on top.Final rating from my family was a 9.5 so I was extremely happy item not reviewed by moderator and published
Overall, a crowd pleaser. I generally avoid Paula's recipes as well, they aren't exactly healthy. I was intrigued by the combination of ingredients so wanted to try it despite the mayo. Which seems to be a Paula staple. I substituted low fat mayo, low fat sour cream and low sodium cream of mushroom soup and used a whole wheat panko bread crumb for the topping to try to mitigate. I don't typically have bone in breasts around so just poached and shredded some boneless breasts instead. I realized I didn't have any regular curry so used red curry instead and it worked out beautifully. I served it over a whole grain penne. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was excellent!!! A in my book. I took the leftovers to lunch to share with the gals, and they all really liked it. Served with brown rice as the sauce is rich enough to mix in with the rice on your plate and made a good compliment to the dish. Now have to share the recipe for others at work. Will make this again without a doubt. Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
With the substitutions gmzen used I couldn't resist making my own, and I can't say that I was disappointed! Had a bit of difficulty with grating my chese (can't use the store bought parm, gotta have it fresh), but other then needing a new grater it was flawless! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wanted to make this but didnt want to have to go to the store. So I used everything but the curry, and used cream of chicken soup and shredded zucchini as substitutions for the mushroom soup and spinach - basically because its what i had. To make it more hearty for a family of 5 (three teens), I peeled and thinly sliced potatoes and laid them across the entire top of the casserole - topped with butter pats and a little parm cheese. YUM - E. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i don't EVER write reviews but absolutely needed to on this one. Smelled great but that's about it. Wouldn't feed it to the dog. I usually love Paula's dishes but this one is aweful!! Way too salty. The curry was very strong. It was just bad. Very bad. Glad my hubby already loves me because this meal was a FLOP! Sorry Paula. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Curry is a strong flavor and was dominant in this recipe. My wife and one of my sons thought it was very good. I would make it again but not put any curry powder in it. The direction were very easy to follow. item not reviewed by moderator and published
NOT GOOD AT ALL!!!!!!! Very upset now have to cook another recipe for my family! THIS IS SOOOOOOOOOOO BAD. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We are not a fan of curry and my husband doesn't like lemon or wine in recipes, so I made a few alterations. I used garlic powder instead of the curry, left out the lemon juice, and used chicken broth instead of the wine. I used a rotisserie chicken and added half a box of cooked pasta shells. For the topping I used crumbled Townhouse crackers and some extra cheddar cheese. It smelled amazing before I even put it in the oven. I think this has taken over as the new favorite in my house. The best way to make a recipe is to look at the ingredients and if there's something in it that you know you or your family doesn't care for, then leave it out or substitute something similar. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Not a fan. We all had food left on our plate. I can't give you a solid reason, we just didn't like the was it tastes. I have to say that I do like the cracker topping idea, but I won't try this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is one of my favorite meals to cook! Instead of chicken breasts, I pick up an already cooked rotisserie chicken, take the skin off and shred it. I also add 1 cup of cooked rice to thicken up the casserole. It gives it a really nice consistency. And I use a sleeve of Ritz crackers instead of bread crumbs. It makes for a super crunchy topping! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was quite good. I was a little disappointed with "my" topping, I used dry breadcrumbs instead of fresh like Paula told me to. Next time I'll use fresh or maybe melt the butter to mix into the breadcrumbs & cheese. Slivered almonds (toasted would be a good add in. item not reviewed by moderator and published

My 3-year-old grandson loves to cook with me so we made this together. He likes broccoli and thought that's what made it 'florentine' so we had to pretend for awhile. After he ate a huge plate of it we talked about spinach and now he knows he likes that too. We didn't freeze ours as we were eating it for dinner that night. My daughter (20) had friends over that night and all the leftovers disappeared. I guess people of all ages love this dish. It's easy too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
all i can say is yum,its a keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this 3 times now, by popular demand.I use chicken "tender" sized pieces and don't shred it, seems to keep it "saucier" and not so dense. I divide it up and send 1/2 over to my daugther's family for a busy weeknight meal, and freeze the rest in portions to take to work. My coworkers are very impressed by this recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I hit my head before trying out this recipe,otherwise I would not have tried it. I halved the recipe. Sauteed mushrooms &chicken in butter with some salt, pepper & garlic powder. I used cream of chicken soup instead. I left out the wine. Squeezed in too much lemon & accidently spilled the curry powder.I used too much cheese. Anyway,when tasted it uncooked, I freaked.But because it was not too salty I cooked it anyway. I was really worried that I had wasted precious food & ruined dinner. I cooked some white rice.WOW, when it came out it was DELICIOUS!GREAT CHICKEN FLORENTINE! Shocking, you are a genius. It took a concussion to get me to try this recipe, but it is a keeper.

followed the recipe exactly and served it over elbow macaroni (mixed it all together in my bowl before eating...thought it was great... my husband gobbled it up and is pretty picky....he loves mac and cheese and this ended up being a variation on mac and cheese with the elbow mac. so glad i have the other half in the freezer : item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish was kind of dissapointing. We ended up eating it as a dip with tortilla chips instead of as a casserole. Maybe next time I will use cream of chicken instead of mushrooms and sub cracker crumbs instead of bread crumbs to give a little texture. item not reviewed by moderator and published
tanks paula fhe whole family loved it soooooooooooooo much,that we plan to make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this recipe and it was so easy. I follow a low carb diet so I traded chicken broth for the wine and left off the breadcrumbs and it turned out great. I love the combination of the lemon juice and curry powder. You definitely don't have to eat very much before it fills you up! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is really good and the whole family enjoyed it. I only use one cup of sharp cheddar and replaced half the chicken with a pound of cooked pasta for a one pot meal. For those that thought it too bland, try good fresh curry, not stuff that has been in the cabinet since 1999. Also, I used reduced fat cheese, sour cream and soup, but real mayo. Lower fat mayo or sandwich spreads just don't taste right in cooking. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for the first time and LOVED it! I did not use the curry, though -- wasn't too sure that I would like the curry taste, as I had never ate it before. But followed everything else to a "t" ..... will be making again -- soon! My 3 year old picky eater son, even ate it and LOVED it! He didn't know what the green stuff in it was, though! ha! Thank you, Paula, for another great recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this recipe turned out a little bland. It also feels like it's missing something to me. I watched Paula make it on her show, and she serves it with rice. I think this dish would have been a lot more successful if I had done that also, but the recipe omitts that part. Paired with rice or pasta this dish could be a winner, on its own it's only so-so. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is such a yummy recipe! I saw comments that recommend putting less curry in there and that is a good idea because when I made it all I could taste was curry, however it is very tasty and should be served over bow tie pasta..yum :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish wasn't horrible, but it's not worth making again. It's really high in calories and turns out more like a dip than an entree. I really don't understand why every Paula Deen recipe has mayo in it. Sometimes it's okay to cook without it! Also, while I really like the flavor of curry, it was out of place in this recipe. I wouldn't waste the time and calories on this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have never made a recipe by Paula that we haven't liked until this one. Not enough flavor-we threw away the leftovers. It sure sounded good on TV but I won't make it again. Sorry, Paula. I'm trying your spinach stuffed zucchini tonite! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I can't believe it even exists, but here's a Paula Deen recipe that is just okay. It had flavor, but you have to be carefull about the salt. Maybe it needed some other additon for texture.

Paula's recipe sounded great, but we love our onions, so I added one large, diced Vidalia sweet onion to Paula's recipe and it was a great, simple recipe. I used 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts that I boiled in water with salt, pepper & thyme until just done and then I shredded it. Worked great. We love you Paula!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just want to say that there is so much talent on FoodNetwork that if you watch these shows, you cannot come away without becoming a great cook. Though I love all, Paula Deen is someone I gravitate toward since I love the comfort foods. This recipe for Chicken Florentine is wonderful. Easy and good, what's better than that. I'm a cook and cookbook author and have been recuperating from hip surgery and keeping good company with FoodNetwork to pass the time. When coming across this recipe by Paul Deen on her "Pot Luck" episide for Chicken Florentine, I promised myself, it would be the first meal I cook for my family when I am able to get back to normal. Today was the day! It was a great, easy recipe and every family should have this recipe as a staple in their family cookbook. If your pantry and freezer is stocked with the basics (and this recipe qualfies) you can make this for any type of occasion and it will be a hit. Try it all. Thanks Paula. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this on Wednesday and loved it. I used dry vermouth instead of the wine as suggested by America's Test Kitchen. Probably would use a little less vermouth next time as it had a strong wine taste. Other than that, definitely a winner that I will cook again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is fabulous just the way it is! It's fun to 'doctor' recipes and 'make them your own....sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

So, change away, but if you come on here to rate this recipe...rate THIS recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was AMAZING! Easy and able to manipulate to fit what I had on hand (fresh baby spinach-instead of frozen), I used only one can of soup and I used cream of chicken and half the mayo~a little more waist friendly!

First of all, most of the bad reviews that I see form this web site are from those who do not know how to improvise when they find an ingredient they do not like but they use it anyway. If you think something is TOO much - stop and taste it. Two cups of cheese is not a lot for those who even slightly like cheese. Granted, that's only my opinion My palate is not the same as a 9 year old either so that goes into consideration. Most of paula's recipes can be improved upon if you wish to improvise. I simply found everything here to be in order and very favorable. Great way to incorporate spinach into a casserole. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had high hopes for this dish. It sounded great on paper and looked great on the show. I think I used a little too much lemon in mine. There was something about it I just didn't care for. Not sure I would try it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
To Cynthia "Too Cheesey": I used mild cheddar instead of sharp. Try it! I enjoyed the too easy preparation of this dish. I had family coming over on short notice and used this wonderful recipe with a green salad and fruit.

The recipe looked exactly how it looked when she prepared it on the show. As I prepared the dish, all I kept saying to myself was "boy, there is a lot of cheese in this recipe" but I stuck to the recipe, word for word. It was great when I first tasted it, but taking a couple more fork fulls, I realized that there was too much cheese in this recipe for my taste. My 9 year old had the same reaction that I did... I am curious, did anyone else have this reaction? item not reviewed by moderator and published
So, it's not really Paula's recipe. Just mentioning since you gave it a 5 and most reviews were not that good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
