Beef Spinach Hot Dish

My family, which includes my parents and six brothers and sisters, all love this recipe. Sometimes I use ground turkey in place of the ground beef.

    Dinner fail. :( With all the great reviews and positive feedback, I thought this would be a surefire hit. None of my family members enjoyed this dish and we ended up throwing it away. i followed directions exactly. Overpowering spinach (and we very much enjoy spinach.) Did not find that flavors matched. Disappointed we spent at least $15 to make this casserole and ended up in the garbage.

    I used 1# hot Italian Sausage instead of the beef. It was absolutely scrumptious!

    This was good- we both liked it quite a bit! It was easy to make and the flavors blended together nicely.

    I have made this many times. My husband loves it. I've used turkey at times along with a small can of chopped chiles. I use whatever cheese I have at the time. You really can't mess this recipe up. Delicious!

    This is so yummy! I'd eat the whole pan myself, but I doubt my man would appreciate that!
