Okay for starters I used a can of spinach and drained it VERY well...I also used a clove of fresh minced garlic omitted the dried onion and used the fresh minced onion.Also used in place of garlic powder garlic salt! It didn't taste fabulous so I added fresh grated parmesan cheese for creaminess YUM! Just the way I like it with a great deal of modifications! Read More

The garlic and onion flavors just didn't mesh well with the taste of spinach. Read More

I used this recipe because it had the texture I wanted and I was hoping the evaporated milk would be creamy. I really like the method of using the blender but was disappointed with the flavor as written. I ended up adding about 4 ozs of cream cheese salt and pepper and am happy with the final results.

I thought this was really good...I followed the directions exactly because I wanted to be able to keep the spinach dish low-fat. The only change I will make next time is to add a dash of nutmeg a pinch of salt and to bake it instead of cooking it on the stovetop. My three year old also seemed to really like it. Read More

I loved this recipe with a few alterations. I put 1tbsp of light cream cheese in mine. Other than that I made it as it was written. However in the future I will leave out a great deal of the 1/2 cup minced onions. Read More
