"This is a little easier, a little quicker, a little more contemporary, and believe it or not, a little lighter than traditional creamed spinach. Have all your ingredients ready to go ahead of time. It's a classic steak side dish."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

2 (16 ounce) bags
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
cayenne pepper, or to taste
freshly grated nutmeg
heavy whipping cream
freshly grated lemon zest
finely shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
It was spectacular! Quick and easy. It was very creamy. I would definitely make this again!
Perfect steak side dish! I love making creamed spinach this way, super easy and tasty! I also like adding a little shredded provolone to pump up the creamy cheesy factor.
My favorite creamed spinach recipe to date. I used a 10oz box of frozen chopped spinach instead of fresh - just microwaved it until it was room temp, drained the liquid and added it to the cream. Excellent!
I used a thawed 10 oz. box of frozen spinach in place of the fresh spinach. Next time, I will increase the nutmeg a bit more and reduce the cayenne, but that is just personal preference.
Made it, loved it. Will make again. The simplicity of the procedure and the clean, simple taste of the ingredients is outstanding.
I substituted sour cream for heavy cream, and used frozen spinach. Flavorful, fast and not-so-naughty!!! YUMMY!!!

Best creamed spinach I ever had, and I love creamed spinach! It actually TASTED like spinach, novel idea :) Very easy to make and for the first time, I would change nothing in a recipe. Well I correct that - I would double it as it wasn't enough! But seriously, this is enough to barely serve 4. Everyone wanted more but just not enough. Enjoy!
