This is a recipe that is easy, fast and super delicious. Even if the kids in the family don't like spinach, they just might eat this up like my grandchildren did, without even mentioning the veggie.
Pair it with a green salad, and warm garlic bread, and you have a meal that is great for a weeknight dinner.
