I believe I got this off of the Internet, but don't know what website. This is a yummy side dish that could easily be made into a main entree by adding an extra layer of ground beef (browned) or left over chicken. It takes a little effort, but is worth it. I made this last year when I was trying to use up a 5 lb. bag of egg noodles. Do you have any idea how long a 5 lb. bag can last you? So glad I stumbled across this recipe! Hope you enjoy!

This is good. I am not sure exactly how to describe it. The prominent flavor is the spinach. I halved the recipe and baked it in a loaf pan and I omitted the mushrooms as we dont like them - but other than that, I followed the instructions exactly. I found I only needed about 1/2 of the noodles. Every bite is different and there is quite a mix of flavors with the hashbrowns, cheeses, 2 different onions, spinach and noodles. It is quite buttery, I would prob cut down on the butter next time. I did not need to put it under the broiler, it browned up very nicely in the oven. I will make this again. Thank you for posting the recipe.

Thought we would love this but..... A lot of work for a pretty bland dish. Too many noodles. Just needed flavoring.

Needs more flavor. The outcome of how it looks after baked is really nice. Just dispointed after first bite. Maybe cook the noodles in chicken broth and had a few spices to bring out flavor to rest of dish. I will try that next time.
