    salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    dash olive oil

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Grease an 8 inch pie plate or round cake pan with cooking spray and set aside.

Cook pasta until it's well done (past al dente, but not yet mushy). Drain pasta and toss in a large bowl with salt pepper and a dash of olive oil.

Chop garlic and add to frozen spinach. Microwave for 3 minutes until spinach is thoroughly thawed. Squeeze out excess water and add to the pasta.

Toss pasta and spinach, add cheeses and beaten eggs. Add salt/pepper to taste. Fold mixture until it looks uniformly dressed then turn into prepared pan.

Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes or until the top is deeply golden and firm to the touch.
