  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

  3. Thaw the spinach and squeeze dry if you haven’t already.
  4. Put all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mix with a hand mixer until totally combined. Pour into the prepared pan and spread with a rubber spatula. Place into the middle of the oven and cook for 40 minutes. Serve warm.
