Recipe by jackdenton

A must Try! This spinach dish is SO good! Got it out of the Houston Chronicle food section, tried it, and my family fell in love with it. My 3 yr. old grandson ate 3 helpings. Best of all it's really easy to make.

Very tasty. I loved the crunchy cracker topping. It was just a bit dry and I couldn't taste the parmesan cheese. When I make this again, I will add a little milk and some more cheese. Thanx for posting this!
