"I don't always like breakfast casseroles, sometimes they are overcooked, or just flavorless. This one is great! Best one I've made by far. I used fresh spinach since I prefer that and it was still great. I also accidentally dumped a whole bunch of extra onion powder in it and I didn't ruin it. I would use a little more salt and crushed red pepper next time, but otherwise, perfection as is!"

"Yes, 14 eggs is correct (note "Test Kitchen Approved" icon and please don't rate until you've at least tried it - thank you). The fresh grape tomatoes give this dish a lovely presentation. I used the entire 15 oz. container of ricotta. Everyone enjoyed the dish and one guest requested the recipe."
