This looks really good, and I'd like to try it, but I wonder about the lettuce... What texture did it have after cooking?

This does sound good, but I think I'd substitute spinach for the lettuce. I'm not sure I'd like the results of cooked romaine. Does it hold up well?

These sound very yummy! I need a change from just salad for a side dish with my meat. I will let you know what I think.
