This is a very easy and tasty recipe. You can leave the spinach out if you don't like it. I only use 1/4 of the bag, and make a small salad with the leftover. I add craisins and toasted sliced almonds.
You can really use as much cheese as you like, or even leave out the can tomatoes if you don't happen to have any on hand.
ENJOY!
