"This is a recipe for a delicious and cheesy creamed spinach. It's easy and tastes much better than any store bought or frozen versions. I made it for Thanksgiving and it was great!"

3 (10 ounce) bags
clean fresh spinach, roughly chopped
1 1/4 cups
minced white onion
shredded provolone cheese
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
excellent - with changes. I made it the way it was written the first time but thought there was way too much cream. The second time I sauteed the onion & garlic in butter, precooked & drained the spinach and added it to the pot and added about 1/4 cup 1/2 & 1/2, a heaping tablespoon of reduced fat cream cheese and about 1/4 cup parmesan and a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg and it was to die for. Rich and creamy...yum!
Of course I had high hopes for this and thought it would be delicious or I wouldn't have tried it...but I was let down. I didn't have provolone on hand (Hubs detests it with a passion) but I did have a good Italian Fontina. Unfortunately it was, "rich, heavy, and creamy."
Excellent! I thought the measurement of '6 slices provolone cheese, shredded' was a little funky so I diced my 6 slices and measured it. Its about 1 1/4 cups, equivalent to shredded, so about the same amount of provolone as cream, in case you are puzzled like me. I made this recipe as written. Yummy, garlicky-cheesy good. Thanks!
All my favorite ingredients - cheese, butter, garlic, cream and on! This had lots of flavor and was excellent. I was looking for something to mix with pasta, so it didn't matter that it was a bit thin due to using 1/2 and 1/2 instead of cream. It made quite a nice dish and thickened as it cooled. I'll do it again... thanks!
This was awesome but I just used things I had at home. I used whole milk to make this and only used about a cup. I never have cream so I wanted to make sure it was okay to use just milk. I used 2 cloves of fresh garlic, just a little minced onion, and salt and pepper to taste in a saucepan on the stove in the milk. I wilted the fresh spinach in the microwave for like 2 1/2 minutes in a steamer. I chopped it up and added it to the milk mixture. I just kept cooking more spinach until it looked like enough. I had a huge bag though so that is why I could just keep doing that. I sprinkled parmesan cheese on the top and it was perfect. Thanks for the starter recipe.
I used frozen spinach but other than that kept the recipe as is and it is WONDERFUL!!
I normally don't like spinach but this was amazing. The did substitue the cheese. I found a shredded blend of mozzarella and parmeasen cheese and that work out great. I also added less onions. Diffently will make this again.
Great and easy recipe using FRESH spinach. Frozen spinach is not a good substitute for fresh in this type of recipe.
