This is sooo good!! We switch it up a bit and substitute 1 box of frozen chopped broccoli for one of the boxes of spinach. We also add a sprinkling of oregano for extra flavor. I usually skip the croutons to make this dish gluten-free for myself. It's just as good. Sometimes we just defrost the veggies in the oven as it cooks (on 325) with the butter and cream cheese and bake it until bubbly and golden on the edges.
