Uses for old spinach?

anakalia | Sep 27, 200906:34 AM     12

It seems like every week, I buy a big bag of spinach, and end up with about half of it left on Sundays. It's not really rotten at all, but it's starting to get old and I can tell it wouldn't really be fresh enough to use in a spinach salad.

Any ideas of what I can do with it, so I don't waste it?

I thought about putting it in a quiche with some mushrooms or something - is this a good idea? Or, if the spinach isn't good enough for a salad, should I just assume it isn't good enough for anything and toss it?

Thanks!

(BTW, I hate creamed spinach, so please do not suggest that!)
