Crunchy Cheesy Fish and Spinach Casserole

"What a great way to combine all food groups into one casserole dish. So yummy, the kids won't even mind eating their veggies. Also a good meal idea for the working mom; it's simple to put together and cooks quickly in the oven. Substitute any mild white fish for the cod if desired."
