Easy Baked Spinach with Cheese

I love the flexibility of spinach, whether raw in a smoothie or baked with cheese or even made with soup. I was craving for some spinach and cheese

and looked up a recipe at all recipes, but decided to definitely change it out and make it more simple and easy to make, but yet still delicious. I looked up my flavor bible on spinach to find a good herb to match with it, and chose dill. This Easy Baked Spinach with cheese came out delicious. And instead of white flour, I chose barley flour (whole wheat flour should work on this recipe, and might be better to reduce it down to 2 TBSP, it will cook longer than white flour).
