I made this recently, and it was a real hit. Delish. I actually doubled the sauce and served with pasta, and it made more than 6 servings. The next time I make it, I will probably add mushrooms. I'm also not sure that you really need to do the creamed spinach as a separate step; I think that the next time I make this, I will just double the sauce on top, put the spinach on the bottom by itself, and mix the basil and thyme in the sauce. It all ended up kind of mixing together anyway, and I think that would simplify it.
