My husband who does not even like spinach took two helpings of this! I expected it to be more eggy like a quiche, but found it wonderfully tasty the way it was. I used 2 cans of drained spinach to speed up prep time and it was still fantastic. DH gave this 4 stars, but since I always have the last word I am giving it a 5! Thanks for sharing!
