This makes a wonderfully easy entree for company. Filled with a combination of spinach, blue cheese and mushrooms, it gets rave reviews every time. Taken from the Light & Tasty Magazine.

Very good recipe and not too hard to make. The blue cheese was too pungent when I made it the first time, so the next time I used shredded swiss instead of the blue cheese and my guests loved it.
