I love this recipe and all the modifications others have made to suit their tastes. Here's what we do: I double the frozen spinach to four 10oz. packages (for more spinach flavor). Substitute 1 cup of the bread crumbs with 1 cup of blanched almond flour (for lower carbs) and add some extra Italian seasoning to that. Use 1/4 cup of finely diced white or yellow onion instead of green onion and use 2 whole eggs plus 2 x-lrg egg whites (for less sat fat). I think the butter adds the richness needed, so I leave that as is. I don't usually add garlic, b/c I don't want to saute anything for this easy recipe, but I have added garlic raw and a little goes a long way. A little fresh grated nutmeg (1/4 tsp) is wonderful in this as well. I usually cook up a few for our meal that day and then roll out the rest onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and freeze (uncooked) individually on that. Once frozen I transfer them to a freezer bag. They cook up beautifully from frozen in 25 minutes. Great to have on hand when company arrives unexpected. Will have to try them with the recommended Sangiovese, but have served with Sauvignon Blanc very successfully. I have made this recipe as written and they are fabulous. But the beauty of them is that they CAN be modified quite successfully to your tastes. Don't pass this one up!
