In medium sauce pan, cook frozen spinach in ¼ cup water, lid on, and stir frequently to break up as it cooks, 10 - 15 minutes. Do NOT drain water.
Add the bread pieces, butter, celery salt, Worcestershire and garlic salt, stir to combine and butter melts, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Meanwhile, make the topping. In small bowl, combine melted 2 tablespoons butter, bread crumbs and Parmesan with a fork until crumbly.
Lightly butter small round casserole. Place spinach mixture in casserole and smooth top. Sprinkle top of spinach evenly with bread crumb/Parmesan topping mixture. Bake in center of oven for 15 minutes, until browned and bubbly.
