I wouldn't serve this for a 'special occasion', but it was incredibly good and very fast and easy to make. My father and husband both really enjoyed it. I'll definitely be making it again.
Italian Eggs over Spinach and Polenta

This is so easy and fast. I cook the eggs alittle longer to make sure they are fully set (we don't like runny eggs). My husband loved it. The asiago cheese really gives it a lot of flavor. Would totally serve it for a small group dinner.

I wasn't so sure about this one....all the ingredients and flavors and how they would taste, but this recipe is awesome! I made it last night for dinner, and will most definitely make it again! I poached the eggs longer so the yolks were soft, and it added a delicious creamy texture to everything.

We LOVE this recipe at our house and make it all the time. The combination of textures is delicious. I often make my own polenta which is easy with corn meal. I put the kids eggs in first to let them cook longer since they don't like runny yokes. It is vegetarian and is easy to make when there is nothing in the house if you keep frozen spinach on hand.

Two and a half stars - it's pretty okay - better for supper or brunch than breakfast. I could wait to try it because I love all of the individual ingredients. But the same ingredients can be combined in more delicious recipes / dishes.

I really wanted to like this, but it's just OK. I tried three times. I used homemade polenta and couldn't get it to brown either under the broiler, in a pan or in the toaster oven. The last time, I cooked the egg separately and I think that worked better because I could cook the eggs over easy, and didn't overcook the eggs. I finally gave up on this one.

This recipe is quite simple and quite good. It would be wonderful for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I served it for dinner with sauteed zucchini and it took less than 10 minutes start to finish. I am definitely keeping this as a saved recipe. Highy recommended!

This is the only Cooking Light recipe that has ever made me gag (which probably demonstrates my unsophisticated palate). The combo of pasta sauce and eggs and spinach was not harmonious. The texture was creepy. There is no other way to describe it. The subtle eggy flavor did not jive with the marinara. Would not make again, and will try to erase all memory of it.

This is a fantastic, easy to make recipe. I made my own polenta, rather than using the tube. It's low calorie, extremely filling & very nutritious. I'll definitely be making it again.

This is so delicious and easy to make! This is a dish that you can have any time of day, but my boyfriend and I had it for dinner with some Cabernet Sauvignon and it hit the spot! I'll definitely be making this over and over.

I've made this twice in as many days and neither time did I have it for breakfast. This is a great, quick, and satisfying meal served any time of the day. If you're looking to incorporate extra veggies in your diet, you can easily double the amount of spinach without compromising flavor.

Easy to make, yummy warm taste that you can tell will keep your tummy full and warm.

This was an easy, tasty vegetarian entree. We like our eggs well done so I cooked them five minutes longer than the recipe required. Also added fresh chopped tomatoes to the sauce and topped the eggs with a mixture of shredded Italian cheeses. I made my own polenta -- think it tastes better than the premade in the tube.
