Delightful! Actually, mine ended up being an 8-cheese dish because I added a handful of Mexican 4-cheese blend to the mix. I also had lots of leftover ham from Easter and threw some in as well. Loved the crunchy parmesan breadcrumbs on top. Thanks for posting!

I really liked it. I did find out that my significant other dosn't really care for spinich. Could use a little bit more salt. Very creamy! Yum. Can't wait to eat leftovers.
