    Rich and scrumptious, this is a great brunch dish as well as any other meal! Fairly simple to make. I prefer chopped FRESH spinach but I am posting this recipe as it was given to me. Also, I add feta or Montrachet cheese sometimes if I have it on hand.

      Hubby says it's amazing! I've made this many times now and we can't get enough. Once, I used frozen spinach with cooked chopped italian sausage. Another time, I've used fresh chopped spinach with chopped deli ham, and another with other veggies. I always leave out the nutmeg as I am not a fan. Such a great recipe. Thanks so much!

      After looking at several reviews and noting that they had too much filling or having had to bake it longer, I omitted the cream altogether. I used fresh spinach, about 12 ozs (that's what I had), 20 would be a lot. I baked it in an 8x8 glass casserole. Instead of the pastry crust, I made it with a phyllo dough crust, which turned out beautifully (and it all fit in the dish). Overall, it was a really nice dish and with the ommission of the cream, I would make it again. Thanks for sharing

      This is really good, simple and easily modified to fit your tastes. I added a little bit of garlic and some soysage and it turned out pretty tasty. Next time I think I would add more garlic and a little less spinach to make a perfect tart. I also had extra filling as other reviewers stated, this wasn't a problem as I had an extra pie crust and just rolled it out to make another mini tart.
