    I really liked the way that the spinach and cheddar complemented each other. I had seriously considered omitting the cheese, but having tasted it, decided that the cheese is absolutely essential to this dish. I used almonds rather than walnuts, because that is what I had on hand. And I accidently used a 16-ounce package of spinach.
