I used a Mixed-Herb Compound Butter for Veggies or Meat which flavors this Yummy good! Use care when seasoning for the cheese does add salt. If you don't use a compound butter do add a couple cloves of minced garlic when sauteing the onions.

Wow! My 3 children ate this entire casserole and loved it! By the time we had thirds the casserole was gone. A huge hit. I didn't have fresh spinach so I used 2 packages of frozen spinach that I thawed and squeezed mostly dry. I didn't try the compound butter because I was in a rush, but instead I added 3/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning to my saute pan with the butter. I served it with bread and butter. So good!

I actually wasn't as impressed with this as the other reviewers. I choosing not to rate it because although I wasn't a big fan, my boyfriend really enjoyed it. I did made it as directed following all the measurements and ingredients. It had a good flavor but I thought it was lacking something. I think I am going to try this one again but add some cooked rice or quinoa in it before baking to give it more texture and make it more substantial.
