      This was surprisingly easy to put together. The baked roll also held together well and sliced beautifully. DH thought it looked a little dry, but it wasn’t. The flavor was nice, but a tiny bit more seasoning could be added if wanted. I used a 10 oz box of frozen spinach to make this recipe instead of the fresh as that was what I had on hand. I thought the ratio of spinach could be decreased a little. I also didn’t care much for the soggy texture of the cashews. But they were cooked, so I knew what was coming. LOL Thank you Chef for sharing your recipe!!
