Instead of Spinach(I'm thinking of you Crystal)... I would replace it with zucchini and or asparagus :) I think that would be soooooo yummy! Let me know what you think?? Instead of the nutmeg - I'd replace it with the "Greek" seasoning. I would only saute the red pepper/zucchini till crisp tender - the onion(till more tender) then adding those other veggies to it... OR my version of something like this - I'd make the rice and place that on the bottom and sides of the baking dish (even if you had to add mushroom soup to make it stick......or make it mushy and line it that way - bake for a few minutes before adding the rest of ingredients.....
