Not sure where this recipe originated . . . I'm thinking Cooking Light (non-fat milk). Other cheeses can be used however I'm really partial to the smoked gouda!

I had seen this recipe on, originally from Cooking Light Magazine. I was glad to find it here, so I could add it to my shopping list. It was a winner for us. I didn't have any green onion, so left it out and I used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. I followed everything else exactly, and it turned out wonderfully. My husband went back for seconds and my 1 year old didn't mind the least that there was spinach in it. We really enjoyed it and will definitely make it again, thanks for sharing the recipe.
