What's great about Popeye's favorite vegetable? It's cheap and delicious! Here are 10 top-rated recipes with spinach as the main ingredient. (Use fresh spinach and skip the canned or frozen stuff! It's cheaper by the bunch than in the pre-washed salad mix bags.)

Rave Review: "This is a great combination of flavors and textures, and healthy! The orzo pasta makes this VERY kid friendly. I usually toast the pasta for a few minutes in a dry skillet prior to cooking in boiling water, adds a little nutty flavor." -- Cinzia
