This turned out to be a great appetizer! I used frozen broccoli instead of spinach, and added some chopped mushrooms as well. I also added salt, which I thought it needed. The best part was that I had leftovers and it turns out to make a great quick breakfast or lunch heated in the microwave for 30 seconds or so. Thanks for the recipe!
