  2. Cook the spinach according to the package instructions; drain. Set aside and let it cool.

  5. Combine the soft breadcrumbs and 1 tablespoon melted butter in a small bowl; stir to coat well. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs evenly over the cheese sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and the vegetable mixture is thoroughly heated.
