Top Review by Muffin Goddess

Mmmm, cheesy! I didn't have any frozen spinach, but I had a couple bags of fresh that I needed to use, so I'm not sure if I put in enough spinach (not sure if 2 10oz bags of steamed fresh is close to a 15oz box of frozen). Either way, this was yummy and cheesy, and about as decadent as spinach can be -- I think I had just as much cheese as spinach! Good stuff, thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 09
