After trying this casserole for the time at the height of my morning sickness during my second pregnancy, I was happily impressed with myself, and the recipe, for going down smoothly.  Not only did I enjoy it though, but my then 1.5-year-old daughter scarfed it down as well, without offering up any complaints.  In fact, this dish is so tasty, that kids will love it despite it’s green appearance, made so by the addition of spinach.

Ingredients:

  • 1 10 ounce package of frozen spinach •OR• 2 cups of fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 teaspoons dried onion

  • ½ teaspoon pepper
