I DISCOVERED this recipe while I was on a hunt for a different kind of vegetable dish to serve. I tried it and declared it a winner. The guests I first served this to also raved, so it has a permanent spot in my recipe file. -Dorothy Pritchett, Wills Point, Texas

"I added mushrooms and approximately 1/3 cup of a white cheese. The recipe was really good and I don't normally like spinach.My guests loved it."
