This sounded like a yummy way to use up a loaf of bread. I think I'll stick to bread pudding or french toast. The dish is pretty tasty, but the mushy bread texture makes it something I won't make again.
Tomato & Spinach Dinner Strata
This yummy lasagna-inspired casserole has cheese, vegetables, eggs and marinara sauce but uses sturdy whole-grain bread instead of noodles, which makes it even easier to make. Its hearty look hides the fact that it’s made with all low-fat, healthful ingredients. Of course, it makes a great brunch entree as well—don’t let the name fool you.

I love this recipe. I wasn't sure about the eggs and bread with the marinara sauce, but it was really fantastic. I used lite white bread because I didn't have whole wheat on hand. I also added 4 links of Italian style turkey sausage (Gemelli brand) for added protein. Other than those 2 changes, I made the recipe exactly as described. I used a 9 x 13 pan since I added the sausage and it fit well without any spilling over when cooking. I will make again. The only thing I would do is I would remove the bread crust (and add an additional slice to make up for the crust) if serving for company. From an asthetic standpoint, it was odd seeing the crusts when eating it.
