Idea for Thanksgiving this year. From Barefoot Contessa

Top Review by Pinot Grigio

I made this for Thanksgiving this year too. It was absolutely FABULOUS!! The best spinach gratin ever - no need to look for another recipe. It is very rich - but oh, so good. I will be making this every year over the holdiays - without a doubt. The leftovers were great too. Try it with her mashed potatoes and gravy which are amazing for vegetarians (as long as you include dairy!) Thanks for posting!
