This recipe came from Family Circle I believe. I LOVE IT!!! My husband loves spinach and I can't stand it, but we both love this recipe!

This was a good recipe. It was raining outside so I just baked them in the oven for 30 minutes. I'll make this again. I would add garlic and parmasean to the spinach mix next time.
