I have several packages in the freezer now but the hot weather is pretty much here so will have to wait for fall and plant some more.

one word W O W!!!!

I will be adding this to my arsonal....I used less cheese and its still way cheesy! I honestly dont know what is better....my halibut or the spinach....ha ha kidding the halibut is rockin...but the spinach comes in a close second.

Ok just finished and left 1/3 on my plate....way (almost too) rich and VERY filling. still good...next time will decrease all (except the garlic) and eyeball it.

That's a little over a quarter cup of cheese per person. I wonder how much it can be reduced. I have a problem with cheddar cheese but apparently not cream cheese. I wonder about cutting the cream cheese in half and just a couple tablespoons of cheddar?

Sounds good! You could probably also sub for a few Tbs of sour cream, too (if you do okay with that?).
