spinach and tomatoes appetizer

holidays are here and everyone seems to be searching for red and green appetizer ideas.  here is one that is quick and easy and can be adjusted to individual taste preferences for your family.  begin by chopping some small red tomatoes, season with a selection of favorite herbs.  choices would include parsley, thyme, dill with seasonings to taste including salt and pepper.  drizzle the tomatoes with a light application of olive oil.

next, thaw a small quantity of chopped frozen spinach and mix with a selection of cheese.  cheese selections would include fontina, mozzarella, Parmesan, feta or Gruyere.  place spinach and cheese in a ceramic baking dish and heat in oven for approximately 15 minutes at 350 degrees or until cheese is melted and spinach is warmed. mix to evenly incorporate the cheese and spinach. adjust desired amount of spinach and cheese to your family’s taste preferences.  i prefer more spinach to cheese, as can been seen in the photo.

serve with tomatoes and crusty bread.  this is a delicious healthy appetizer which is wonderful for the holiday themed table.
