I refused to try spinach for many years. Then one day I found this interesting recipe and decided to give it a whirl. It convinced my taste buds that spinach can be delicious!—Wendy Furie, Frederick, Maryland

"This was really good! I used croutons and crushed them and I also used fresh spinach and it was great! One comment says to use less croutons/bread crumbs and I agree."

"Simple and tasty.

Need to use less bread crumbs and more cheese. I found 3/4 cups of bread crumbs made it a little too dry so I uses 1/2 cup the second time. Delicious recipe though. Everyone was fighting over the last one."
