    1       c            White or brown rice
                         Salt and pepper -- to taste
    1       lb           Fresh spinach
    1       tb           Olive oil
    1                    Onion -- minced
    1                    Garlic clove -- minced
    1       t            Chopped thyme
      1/4   c            Minced parsley
    1       pn           Red pepper flakes
      1/4   lb           Grated provolone cheese
    3                    Eggs -- beaten (optional)
 
   PREHEAT OVEN TO 350F. Cook rice in salted water until tender but still
   undercooked (15 minutes for white rice, 30 minutes for brown). Drain, rinse
   with cold water, drain again and set aside. Wash spinach and remove stems.
   Cook spinach in the water that clings to the leaves, until wilted. Cool and
   chop coarsely. Heat the oil, add the onion and saute until softened. Add
   the garlic and thyme. Combine all the ingredients together and season with
   salt and pepper to taste. Lightly oil a baking dish and add the spinach
   mixture. Drizzle more oil over the top, if desired. Cover with foil and
   bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil and cook for 5 minutes more.
