When I was growing up, my mom couldn't get me to eat spinach. She made these spinach squares and I became a lover of spinach. These are great for pot luck situations or just a family dinner at home. You can make little personal sized spinach rounds. Just spray a muffin pan and fill about halfway with the mixture and bake as you would the regular casserole. Serve as a side dish or as an appetizer.
