This simple gratin, based on a traditional French recipes, makes a wonderful side dish for pork or chicken. If fresh spinach is unavailable, use two packages frozen, chopped spinach. Just make sure you thaw and drain it very well before proceeding with the recipe. Curry powder embraces and softens the sometimes mineral taste of spinach.
