  • Arrange potatoes on a baking sheet. Bake until easily pierced with a fork, 50 minutes to an hour.

  • Heat butter and olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Saute mushrooms until they begin to soften and brown. Add spinach; cook and stir until spinach is wilted, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Stir in the Classico® Fresh Creamy Alfredo Sauce. Bring to a simmer and cook about 5 minutes to slightly thicken the sauce.

  • Cut a slit in the potatoes and squeeze the sides to loosen the flesh. To serve, pour some of the creamy spinach-mushroom sauce into and over the potato. Sprinkle with chopped tomatoes.

What a great way to change up the classic baked potato! This was much enjoyed and would be a great side to serve with steaks. I'd serve this one to guests too as it made a nice presentation! 5 stars from this house! Read More

I give this recipe three stars. One star for creativity the second star for easy preperation and the last star for overall taste. My first suggestion would be to season your potato before dressing with the sauce (butter salt pepper ect). The second would be to thicken up the sauce with parmesean cheese. Or even better make your own alfredo sauce. I used the brand recommended and im sad to say it was awfully bland. I like a more cream cheese flavored sauce and this was nothing like what i had hoped.

This was excellent! Because there are just two of us and because the potato was huge I made only one and cut the recipe to 1 serving. We ate this alongside leftovers of Chef John's Beef Stroganoff and a salad and we were happy campers. The only thing I did different was to use arugula rather than spinach because that's what I had on hand (and I LOVE the little bite of arugula!) and also because I love butter so much I added some to the bottom of the split potato before adding the sauce. Excellent! If you have just two of you to feed one 15 oz jar of Classico Fresh Alfredo Sauce is perfect for several meals. Just check out their recipes! You won't be sorry! Read More

I realized until I saw this recipe that I have always been on the boring side when it comes to baked potatoes with the traditional sour cream butter and salt. We grilled up a couple of extra large russet potatoes so I had them ready for this recipe. Being as I only had 2 large potatoes I divided the rest of the recipe in half. Then accidentally used the whole jar of alfredo. It still worked fine! I made the sauce the night before. For some reason as it sat in the fridge it got thinner and not thicker. So this afternoon I made a roux to thicken it and that worked great. My only additions were a pinch of black pepper and garlic powder. I also added a large roma to the sauce in addition to on top. I like tomatoes and the color was pretty mixed in the sauce. My only issue is the saltiness. Although to the submitters credit no salt is added. I just find many bottled sauces salty tasting personally. I liked all of the fresh ingredients added to doctor up a regular or plain alfredo. It would work great on pasta too. Read More

I went a slightly different route and used broccoli rabe instead of spinach. This is very rich and filling and I loved the slight bitterness of the greens with the lush sauce. Such a creative use of the ingredients. Thank you TFR Read More

I love anything with Alfredo sauce! I love the twist on your average baked potato. It was like combining spinach dip and a baked potato. YUMMY! Read More

This was such a great idea I can't believe I've never thought to do something like this before. Different but very filling and tasty. I did make a couple small changes but I believe they really added to it. I believe I used twice as many mushrooms Bertoli Classic Alfredo with Mushroom Sauce instead of Classico a 10oz bag of fresh spinach (instead of measuring out 6 cups) and I added 2 bags of Tyson precooked cubed chicken (just to make it a full meal) in between sauteing the mushrooms and adding the spinach. While I was wilting the spinach I gave it a few good sprinklings of garlic powder. These have already been requested as an upcoming meal at my house! Read More

Loved it! We have been trying to do 'Meatless Mondays' and this was the perfect fit! It was great tasting and very filling. A wonderful idea for a baked potato and I look forward to putting all kinds of pasta sauce on baked potatoes from now on. Read More
