    This sounds good, especially the pineapple! I'll have to give it a try. I usually have cooked spinach with vinegar.

    I love fresh spinach. I pile it on sandwiches in place of lettuce. I love an omelette made with fresh spinsch, mushroom, onions and bacon and provolone cheese.
    yummy!

    Spinach dip! I follow the recipe on the Knorr Vegetable Soup package and we eat it with Hawaiian Bread. We don`t always make the "bowl", sometimes just tear up the Hawaiian rolls and use them, or cut up fresh vegetables and use them to "dip" with.

    This says not to use fresh spinach but I`ve only used the frozen in winter when fresh wasn`t available.

    Oh, heavens, I just finished eating my pasty and stuffing myself on it too as I haven't made one for a long time, so I have no right nor reason for drooling, except that I also love spinach both fresh and wilted and I could almost smell it reading your post.

    I love spinach too and use fresh when I make Naan Bread veggie pizza. Use Naan Bread base, cover with spinach, red onions, diced tomatoes, galic, sliced roast red peppers and aptichoke hearts. Sprinkle with a little oilve oil and top with fresh grates Parmesan Cheese. BAke in 400 drgeee oven for 13-17 min. depending on oven.

    I also make enchiladas with drained frozen spinach, mexican cheese and diced opnions, s & p. Fill tortillas, place in 9x13 pan, with enchillada sauce under tortillas and over the top. Cover enchiladas with more grated mexican cheese, sliced black olives. Bake at 375 for 20-25 min. until bubbly and cheese is melted. Top with sour cream and sliced green onions.

    Enjoy!

    Spinach
    sliced tomato
    mozzarella cheese.
    Put all in a pie plate with the cheese on top of course. Place in oven until cheese melts and is slightly bubbly. Drizzle on a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar add salt & pepper and you have a feast. You will be amazed at how good this is. =)
