I made this as written except with colby jack cheese, added a can of rinsed and drained tiny shrimp, and add an extra cup of the cheese , which I sprinkled on top. It is Yummy! Thanks for the recipe.

I made this almost as directed. I used a mixture of jack & cheddar cheese, plus I made one side heavier on the spinach as my DH doesn't care much for it. I felt it was delicious and satisfying. Next time I make it, I'll cook it a little longer. Made for Veg 'N Swap tag #28.
