Potato and Spinach Casserole

A friend served this casserole at a dinner party, and I had to ask for the recipe. I've made it for friends and relatives on a number of holidays and other special occasions since. The recipe is perfect for parties, because it can be prepared early in the day and baked later on when the guests arrive.

    Great! I did add about 3 oz of cream cheese and used garlic pepper & 1 t garlic salt and 1 t reg. salt. I actually put the cheese in the casserole and just sprinkled a tiny bit on top and also a little bit of Parmesan. I used fresh spinach for the frozen and it turned out fine!

    I was very pleased how this turned out, and so was my family! I was delighted that the non-spinach eaters were chowing down.
