We liked this very much - followed directions exactly, except used fresh, blanched collards instead of frozen. The dish took a little longer than expected to cook on the stovetop, but the greens were still a little wet. Flavor was very good, and leftovers reheated nicely. Everyone enjoyed it very much.
