What a combination Mushrooms, Spinach and of course cheeseeeee…This is a different recipe from the one I usually like to bake. This time I have Greek cheese that my mom brought over from Greece Yayyyy, and I have added dill instead of parsley. The usual recipe calls for heavy cream, fresh scallions, garlic, which for a late evening snack I thought it would be just a bit to much after the Christmas dinner we had the other day. Hope you enjoy this recipe….:)
