Oh my! What a nice way to wake up! My husband and I had the recipe for breakfast and it was delicious. I used fresh tomato slices on the top instead of canned, because that was what I had. The flavors were so good together. Be sure and drain the spinach mixture well, and I let it sit about 10 minutes before cutting it. Thanks, Karyl Lee Carole in Orlando

I used 250 grams rindless diced bacon, TRUE! And blended ricotta and cheese with electric hand mixer too! Thought it would make it easier to spread for me! NO EGGS!!!! WOW!!! A BONUS FOR ME!! THANKS!

I made this as a side dish for dinner with pork chops and it was great! Mine was a bit runny, but I think that was because I didn't drain the tomatoes well enough or let it sit out before cutting into it. My roomie couldn't believe there was no egg and kept calling it quiche!
