    I'd wait for Dina to answer back...!

    Any recipe I have for barley has me precook it in 3-4 times as much water for about 45 minutes. I can't imagine that this recipe uses uncooked barley!? (But, of course, I could be wrong.)

    The ingredients look good! [img]tongue.gif[/img] Carol

    I'm not Dina but I have the cookbook the recipe came from. Here are the cooking instructions.

    1. Place the barley and water in a 1 1/2 quart pot, and bring to a boil over high heat. reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for about 50 minutes, or until the barley is tender and the liquid had been absorbed.

    2. Place cooked barley and all the remaining ingredients except for 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan in a large bowl, and stir to mix well. Coat a 1 1/2 quart cassrole dish with cooking spray, and spread the mixture evenly in the dish. Sprinkle reamining Parmesan over the top.

    3. Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Remove the dish from the oven and let sit 5 minutes before serving.

    Sorry! When I wrote my idea of directions, I assumed cooked barley! I'm planning to make this for Christmas as I have a vegetarian daughter. DH and I will probably love it too, tho for us it'll be a side dish. happy holidays and thanks for the correct recipe!

    Glad I found you! Couldn't remember where I saw this recipe. I made this for Christmas and it was a hit! I altered it a bit by sauteeing the mushrooms, onion, and garlic in a few spritzes of olive oil Pam before I incorporated it into the spinach/barley. Everyone loved it! thanks!
