From the cookbook "Diabetic FOUR Ingredient Cookbook."
I love spinach and can't wait to try this recipe.
I have printed it here just like it is in the cookbook, but I would probably use low fat cheddar cheese instead of fat free, because it performs better. That should only add about 3 grams fat per serving.
