"When we were growing up, spinach was one of the only vegetables my brothers and I enjoyed," recalls Paula Tuduri, Bozeman, Montana. "So our mom found all kinds of ways to include it in meals. This dish is one of my favorites. Be creative," she suggests. "Feel free to vary the vegetables, cheeses and meat to suit your tastes and budget."

"I used chopped ham instead of chicken and it went very well with the spinach. Since I had frozen loose leaf spinach in a bag, I thawed just what I needed in the microwave. With the red and green, it would make a nice, easy Christmas breakfast."
