My mom made this recipe years ago and I always remembered how good it tasted! So I made it myself from memory, and it was a success, even with folks who thought they didn't like spinach. Try it for a tasty surprise.

Top with spinach; sprinkle with cheese. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seams to seal and tuck ends under.
