Was OK. Think I need to try this one again as I ended up with very watery spinach from the wilting and this made the breadcrumbs very soggy.

Tried this last night to deal with a spinach explosion in the garden. Excellent and simple way to add interest as a side dish, with room for variations. Eg I used 3 seed bread for the crumb. You could add pine nuts etc etc...

Really easy and tasty side dish. I cooked it for a dinner party alongside Italian chicken with tomato and mozzarella and rosemary roasted potatoes. Will be making it again
