This Strada can be served for brunch, lunch or dinner. It's so easy and tasty. I am bringing this one to my book club potluck.
3 cups of milk (whole)
1/4 tsp grated fresh nutmeg
Salt and pepper to taste
16 oz Italian bread, cut into small cubes (the older, the better)
10 oz. Frozen chopped spinach, defrosted and squeezed dry**
1/2 cup fresh cut parsley, chopped
3 cups shredded *Asiago cheese, divided
* You may use Swiss, Mozzarella, or any type of semi soft cheese.
You can also add 8 oz cooked and drained pork or turkey sausage to be added with the bread cubes.
In large bowl, add eggs, milk and beat very well. Add 2 cups of the shredded cheese. Add remaining ingredients. With fork, press into the liquid mixture in a buttered 3 quart casserole dish.
Top with remaining cheese. Cover and refrigerate all night. Next morning place in preheated 350 degree oven until golden on top, approximately one hour.
** I sauteed spinach in little olive oil and some onion and garlic.
Serve with a salad and a glass of wine...ooh la la
