Spinach and Tomato Bake

This can be made with or without grated cheese. The first two pictures are without cheese.
1 tablespoon melted butter
6 large plum tomatoes
2 cups fresh spinach
1 small clove garlic, grated
1 tablespoon minced red onion
4 egg whites mixed with 1 tablespoons of water
salt and pepper
grated cheese of your choice. As much or as little as you want. I used about 2 tablespoons

-Preheat the oven to 375
-Butter a cake pan and add all the spinach.
-Peel all 6 tomatoes. I took all the seeds out of 5 of the 6 tomatoes. That sixth tomato I sliced and placed on the top.
-Cut the 5 tomatoes into bite size pieces and mix with the onion, garlic, salt, pepper and spinach in the cake pan. Try to make the mixture evenly distributed.
-Try to evenly add the egg whites on top of the mixture and then neatly place the sliced tomatoes on top.
-Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes. I baked mine in a small oven with a pizza stone, so your time may vary.
-Once the spinach is wilted and the tomatoes are cooked to your liking, add the cheese if you want and broil until brown.

Feel free to add ham, bacon, chicken, tofu, or anything else to the mixture before you bake it.
