  1. Place the spinach, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, tomatoes, onion, and Italian seasoning in a medium-sized bowl, and stir to mix well. Set aside.
  2. Slice each roll crosswise into 12 (1/2-inch) slices. If you're using French bread instead of rolls, slice the French bread into 48 (1/2-inch) slices. Arrange the slices on a baking sheet, and spray both sides lightly with the cooking spray. Bake at 400°F for 3 minutes. Turn the slices, and bake for 3 to 5 additional minutes, or until lightly browned and crisp.
  3. Top each slice with 1 tablespoon of the spinach mixture, and return the appetizers to the oven for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Arrange the appetizers on a serving platter, and serve hot.
