Italian Strata

Introduction

Tangy, strong tasting dish. This selection may be somewhat runny at times due to the spinach being frozen. It is really important to squeeze as much of the liquid out of the thawed spinach before using. Fresh spinach may be used although it requires lots of washing!!! In Canada we often use a product called veggie ground instead of veal, beef or turkey. Yves Veggie Ground is pre-cooked in Original or Italian flavouring. This saves on preparation time. One may use another brand of cheese or perhaps low fat. Also the tomato sauce may be substituted with a can of tomato soup.
