    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    In Greece spanakorizo is served as a main dish with crusty bread. Please do not omit the fresh lemon juice and feta it is what makes this dish special, I use freshly grated Parmesan cheese sometimes in place of feta. Two 10-ounce boxes frozen spinach, thawed can be used in place of fresh. You can double the complete recipe but do not double the olive oil, butter and garlic amounts. If you are not a dill-lover then reduce amount.

      I'm an occasional cook and this was wonderfully easy to make. I included sliced chicken breast which worked very nicely.
