I just came into a case of canned spinach and need some recipes for using it. Thanks.

Canned spinach can be used as you would frozen. Just make sure spinach is well drained and most of the liquid is removed. Otherwise your lasagna will be very watery. (03/16/2008)
Make Italian wedding soup! Combine chicken broth, "ball" pasta, spinach, and small meatballs.
Try easy creamed spinach. Make a half cup of simple white sauce. Season as desired. Press most of the water out of a can of spinach, add it to the sauce and heat on low 'till serving temperature is reached. (03/18/2008)
You could make quiche. (03/19/2008)
Here's a great recipe I learned at a Pampered Chef party. Use as much or as little as you want with this recipe. You chop into cubes, lunch meat of ham and turkey. I usually use 2 parts turkey to 1 part ham. Mix with 1/2 can of spinach, 1/2 bag of shredded fiesta blend cheese and enough mayo to hold together, usually 2 large tablespoons. Mix well. Take 2 cans of Pillsbury crescent rolls and lay each piece in a circle on a pizza stone, with tips on outside. Take your meat ingredients and put a spoonful in each large side or roll, bring the tail up to the mound and tuck under, repeat. Now it looks like a wreath when finished. Cook until crescent rolls are browned about 25 minutes at the temperature the crescent rolls state. It has a great taste and there are never any leftovers. My daughter loves this and even asks for more spinach in it. (03/23/2008)
I was involved with a feeding ministry and they had many, many donations of canned spinach to try to use up. Here are some of the things they did and some ideas I found on the internet:
I like to just drain add vinegar heat and eat. Yummy! (01/26/2009)
