This is a great recipe if you like spinach and feta cheese. The times I've made it for other people, they really enjoyed this unusual rice dish. I used white rice in this recipe that was freshly made for the recipe, but I think that leftover rice would work too. I also used Kraft Parmesan cheese, but think that freshly grated Parmesan would be even better.

This is one of our favourites and shows up regularly in "the rotation". We made it a bit healthier by using brown rice. Sometimes we like to substitute broccoli for the spinach. Sometimes we like to use caramelized shallots, asparagus and brie for a completely different taste. We also cook them in large muffin cups rather than pie plates -- makes leftovers more portable.

This was surprisingly really good! I wasn't expecting to like it very much while I was making it; I thought it was going to turn out blah, but I was wrong! I really liked the crusty parmesan topping. I did use fresh spinach, and added garlic. Next time I will also add mushrooms. It was yummy served along with a sun dried tomato & basil chicken sausage. Thank you for posting!!!

This was a wonderful side dish along with some grilled fish. I just used 2 whole eggs and I also used brown rice - don't even have white rice in my house anymore. It came out great! Very tasty......a good comfort food. Thanks for posting!
