***Note, to roast the bell pepper: place on a hot, dry skillet or griddle. Cook turning often until all skin is blackened and blistered. Remove from heat and place in a plastic bag to steam. When bell pepper is cool, peel and seed.
Make sauce: puree the bell pepper with 1 tbs olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (180 C).
Cook the spinach in the microwave as directed. Coarsely chop. Place in a bowl and, using your hands, mix with the mashed potato, the egg, and grated cheese.
Grease a baking dish with the remaining olive oil. Make small balls out of the spinach/potato mixture and place on greased dish. Sprinkle evenly with the breadcrumbs.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the topping is golden and spinach balls are heated through.
