Microwave spinach covered 4-6 min. on high. Drain, pressing to remove excess mosture. Chop and set aside.

Microwave on high for 3 min. Microwave on 50% power for 8-12 min. more until hot. Let stand for 5 min. NOTES : Amount of mozz. cheese can be reduced without hurting recipe.

Freezes well. Have tried other spaghetti sauce but some of them tend to be a little runnier...add more bread crumbs to compensate.
