      Due to lack of time I made this as a baked slice in a rectangular casserole dish and cut it into squares and served it with sweet chilli sauce and it was marvellous. I followed the recipe exactly using frozen home grown spinach. Made for Everyday is a Holiday.

      Just made them! They are DELICIOUS! I didn't drain both bags- just one and that kept them nice and moist! :)
