    1 teaspoon olive oil
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    1 (10-ounce) package fresh spinach
    2 (14.5-ounce) cans diced tomatoes, drained and divided
    Cooking spray
    16 (1-ounce) slices sturdy white bread, cut in half

    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    5 large eggs

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add garlic and spinach; cook 3 minutes or until spinach wilts and liquid almost evaporates. Cool.

Arrange half of the bread slices over tomatoes; top with 1 can of tomatoes, spinach mixture, and remaining bread slices. Combine milk, salt, pepper, and eggs in a large bowl; stirring with a whisk. Pour over bread slices; sprinkle with cheese. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours.

Preheat oven to 375.

    I made this and it was awful. Very soggy, even though I drained the tomatoes. I think there was too much milk. I brought it to a church brunch and no one ate it, I had to throw it out. I was hoping for better. - 8/12/07

    I didn't make this recipe, but have found when making strata, use about 1 cup less milk and add one more egg. This seems to help reduce sogginess - 2/5/08
