“This recipe comes from a Pillsbury recipe card book. This is part of my effort to get my family to eat more spinach. It's good for them! The spinach flavor is very mild in this. I used sunflower kernels instead of pine nuts b/c pine nuts are so expensive. Whipped up quickly and is quite tasty. No one but myself likes spinach in my house but they all enjoyed this. It is very cheesy.”
