  1. This is good stuff! I really liked the added flavor from the nutmeg, and another time, I may drizzle some lemon juice over the spinach layer. Low sodium, low carb, flavorful, and elegant in the dish, - what more could you ask for? Thanks so much for posting this quick, easy, and versatile recipe.
