- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 lb fresh spinach, chopped
- 2 tablespoons wheat germ
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
- Combine rice and cheese. In a separate bowl combine eggs, parsley, salt, and pepper.Add the two mixtures to the spinach and pour into an oiled casserole. Mix wheat germ and butter and spread on top. Bake for 35 minutes.
