Small chef in small restaurant always looking for good side dishes. I usually shy from "soup' ingredients but follwed through with a few good changes. I began with half the butter in which I sauted 1 shallot, minced, and the 4 cloves of crushed garlic (fresh). I then added the 1 tbs of flour and let it cook slightly. I then added the can of soup, let it thicken and then thinned it a bit with 1/4 to 1/2 chicken stock. I the chopped 2 bags of baby spinach, about an inch or so thick and after the heat is off folded it gently into the sauce mixture. I did not let it cook. Placed it all in a 9X13 buttered dish - topped it with 1 cup Panko crumbs, seasoned with S&P and a little Olive oil. I baked it for 15-20 min just to bring it to heat and crisp the topping. Rave reviews...Please try it with the fresh spinach and you will never go back to frozen.
