Spinach Noodle Casserole

 Spinach Noodle Casserole
We enjoyed a similar casserole at a friend's house many years ago. She didn't have a recipe but told me the basic ingredients. I eventually came up with my own version and have shared the recipe many times since. It goes great with ham but also is filling by itself. —Doris Tschorn, Levittown, New York
