Very good, Kim. The guys thought this was very tasty. Made for a nice lunch. Again, used fresh spinach instead of frozen. After the onion, mushrooms and tomatoes were heated, I threw in the spinach and cooked and stirred for a couple of minutes and then into the pie pan. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Kim. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
