Recipe by Marsha D.
I never liked Spinach til I had to try this recipe at my sister-n-laws and from than on I made this casserole for special dinners I either attended or made for supper at home. Its a favorite to many of my friends and family and I thought I would share with everyone here at Recipezaar. Hope you like it too!

I thought this recipe was great as-is; the lack of "cream of" soups is one of the reasons I wanted to make it. I used whole-wheat pasta, low-fat sour cream, skim milk, added some garlic, and I used a handful of parmesan (& then more at the table). We didn't find this dry at all. It's not saucy, but the casserole was moist & flavorful. The only change I'd make is to saute the onions first - they weren't quite cooked all the way and were pretty strong. But, DH & I both enjoyed this, and it also reheats really well.
