"Very good recipe for a quick, weeknight meal. I followed the directions exactly except for using Cream of Celery soup instead of Cream of Mushroom. It was very rich, and I think I will substitute half-and-half for the whipping cream next time."

"Wondering if I could use 2 (10 ounce each) pkgs. frozen chopped spinach (well drained) instead of fresh. Thank you for your reply!"

"This is a delicious meal. The first time I made it I followed recipe exactly and loved it this time I didn't have cream of mushroom soup so I used cream of celery and I like it a lot better with that.. It is extra yummy.... OH actually I didn't follow it exactly the first time I used1% milk instead of heaving whipping cream and I used that this time too... Don't want any extra calories and the milk was just fine to make it yummy!"

"Considering my family does not eat spinach, onions or cream of mushroom soup, this was an easy dish. I used cream of celery, left out the spinach and onion and it was still very tasty. Added a bit of milk to thin the sauce and used 1 1/2 cup mozzie cheese."
