  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, mix heavy cream, butter, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer.
  2. Place spinach in a vegetable steamer, and steam until leaves are wilted. Drain in a colander, pressing out excess water with a large spoon.
  3. Coarsely chop spinach in a food processor, and gradually stir into the heavy cream mixture. Briefly return to boiling, then remove from heat.

I'm giving this 2 stars because it has potential, but really, no one in my family could finish it. I was skeptical about the amount of nutmeg - its not a "little bit" - it was a lot! I can see w...

This is a good base recipe. The changes I make are that I used salted butter, half-and-half to trim some fat, Vidalia onion (about 1/4 of one), and I add about 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese to add...

I read the reviews before I tried this dish, but thought I would try it anyway, as many said it was watery. It turned out great, the only thing I changed, was to spin it dry after washing and I ...
